This shot of Rangitikei Street shows a variety of stores located in this area in the 1960s - including Taylors, a BP petrol station and several second-hand car lots. The Hopwood Clock Tower, built six years before this photograph was taken, can be seen in the distance. Note that it has neither the Easter Cross or the Lantern Cross on top.
