“Queen Victoria Drive” or Victoria Drive as it is more commonly known was started in c1917 with a rough track being put through from Fitzherbert Avenue to Park Road. In 1919, it was properly laid out and metalled and in c1920 – 1921 was finally tarred and sanded. Many native plants and trees were planted bordering the drive, some which still remain. This photograph shows many residents of the Palmerston North enjoying various modes of transportation - whether on foot, by bicycle and by means of automobile.
