This photograph looks across The Square and down Broadway Avenue, probably from the top floor of Roscos Department Store. The Bank of New Zealand on the corner of Rangitikei Street and The Square. The Bank of Australasia is on the corner of The Square and Broadway Avenue. Neither of these buildings stand today. Situated behind the Bank of Australasia is the Australasian Temperance and General Mutual Life Assurance Society Ltd (T&G) building in Palmerston North. Designed by A and K Henderson in the distinctive 'house' style developed by the firm, this iconic structure was built in 1938 and still stands today.
