This postcard shows Coleman Place from 1923. There are several interesting things to note in this image. The Everybody's Picture Theatre (with the domed roof) was built in 1913 for Arthur Hopwood who leased the land. It was remodelled as the “Hotel Midland” in 1928, which operated under the license from the Occidental Hotel which burnt down in 1927. Much of the Hotel was demolished in 1965-1966. The Palace Theatre was built in 1915 on the site once occupied by the Manawatu Stables. The tower structure that can be seen poking above the Harvester Co. building (currently occupied by Youth Space [2017]) is a bell tower that was used to alert the city in case of fire.
