This postcard reads: "Am all alone tonight the family having left with the washing GY (?)". The image looks from the corner of Broadway Avenue down towards Church Street, with Main Street East on the left about centre of the photograph. From left: the side of the Bank of Australasia; W Reed Butchers; Red Bird Cycle Engineers; E Gascoigne: Grocer, Baker, Caterer; Dresden Piano Company and C. Smith Draper. In the distance, W F Durward's drapery business is visible on the site of the Plaza, Church Street (once home to the PDC building). The old Post Office (now the Esplanade Cafe) is on the corner of Main Street East and The Square.
