More Info →The Square looking South

Photo taken by Terry Finnerty, photographer. Clearly shows the railway track and two roads which run parallel on each side of it through The Square.

Fitzherbert Avenue traffic could also drive into and through the Square at this time. In 1964, the railway track and roads were removed, although some parking remained. Other notable features seen in The Square are the Coronation fountain in the foreground, the War Memorial (center left) and the Hopwood Clock Tower behind it.

The road south is Fitzherbert Avenue, with the Public Library building on the first corner (right) on Church Street. The Manawatu Evening Standard building is in the middle and The Municipal Chambers building is at the right end of this block of buildings. Massey Agricultural College is 4.5 kms from The Square, travelling south on Fitzherbert Avenue towards the Tararua mountain range.
