There was a week of events to celebrate Palmerston North being granted Borough status in 1877. On Wednesday a 'Cavalcade of Transport Through the Ages' paraded around The Square. Pictured is an old Cobb and Co. coach which was once in service between Napier and Taupo. It is driven by Mr E.H. English, of Hastings, with a full load of passengers in old-time costume.
