This photograph was taken from the corner of Rangitikei Street. For many years The Square was divided into 5 sections - four quadrants and a central strip that the railway line ran through. This quadrant is nearest the Broadway corner, and one of the two cannons that were features of The Square from 1909 to the 1940s, can be seen centre. The Post Office,on the left, on the corner of Main Street, was built in 1906 - the clock being named Kerei Te Panau after the chief of the Awapuni tribe. W.F. Durward's is on the right (1908-1915). THe United Farmers Co-Operative Association (on Watson Brothers site) is in the photo, but was closed in 1908. On the left side of the photograph is an advertisement for "Urgent Cabs" and a horse and carriage waiting nearby.
