More Info →Panoramic view of the Square

This postcard is part of a panorama taken from the Clarendon Hotel corner. 2014P_Sq93_008870 shows a more westerly view, although some of the details are identical. Alterations to the Bank of New Zealand (corner of Square and Fitzherbert Avenue) took place in 1909. The scaffolding appears to still be in tact. This image also shows an interesting view of the stables that used to stand in the middle of the Square near Rangitikei Street, including the sign that reads, "Carrier's Association Phone 227". The Evening Standard building is visible fourth from right has a large sign that reads Ocean Accident - this was an insurance company in Palmerston North until 1910.
