More Info →Panorama of The Square from the top of the Post Office - circa 1914-1920

This panorama of The Square was taken from the top of the Post Office in The Square of Palmerston North. At this time The Square was divided into 4 quadrants and central strip, bisected by roads. the photograph must have been taken after 1914, because the rebuild of All Saints Church has been completed (the spire can be seen in the background on Church Street). Note the railway line running through The Square. The tracks ran through the Square until after the Milson Deviation was completed in 1959. In 1964 the last passenger train ran through the Square and the tracks were removed.
