This slide shows both a netball game and the exterior of the Manawatu Sports Stadium. The $1.5 million Palmerston North sports stadium, now called Arena Manawatu, was officially opened by Prince Charles 2 April 1981. At the time it was the largest clear-span building in the country, seating 3,500. It was designed by consulting engineers Bill Lobell Smith and Associates. This slide is from a series that was possibly taken for publicity purposes. Based on other images in the set, this image appears to have been taken in the mid-1990s.
