More Info →The Square, South West

This postcard has the message, "Will you send me a box of violets for Miss Fraser for the party if it is not too much trouble. Meta". It was addressed to Mrs HY Lethbridge, Ruatuangata, Wangeahu, Wanganui and postmarkes 4 J1 1904. To the left of the Band Rotunda is the original All Saints Church. It was replaced with the current brick structure in 1914-1915. On the corner of Church Street and The Square is the Provincial Hotel. It burned down 3 January 1906 and was replaced by the Grand Hotel, which still stands in The Square today [2014]. The fact that the three-storey Coles' building (see 2009p_bc134_bui_2557) has not replaced the two storey wooden building on the far right suggests that the photograph was taken around 1902.
