There was a week of events to celebrate Palmerston North being granted Borough status in 1877. On Wednesday a 'Cavalcade of Transport Through the Ages' paraded around The Square. This 1912 Wolsley was the only vintage vehicle which ‘failed’ to complete the course under its own power. It almost fell to pieces in Rangitikei Street and had to be towed the rest of the way (note the tow rope).
