Milk Treatment Station

Milk Treatment Station

The old Midland Brewery, believed to have been the Burton Brewery, was used as the Milk Processing Plant for thirty years. It was purchased in the mid 1940s by the Manawatu Milk and Cream Co. When the milk processing plant for the Manawatu Line began operating, the building was sold to the Consumers Co-operative Society, who demolished it in 1974. The area where the building stood was used by the Society for customer car parking behind the PDC. See 2008N_D78_WOR_1415 for a view of this building's demolition.

Opening of Māori Battalion Hall

Opening of Māori Battalion Hall

The Māori Battalion Hall, named 'Te Rau Aroha' (emblem of gratitude), was erected in Palmerston North as a national memorial to the men of the 28th (Māori) Battalion who lost their lives in the Second World War. It was designed by John Scott, architect of Hastings, and the 14 carved panels on the facade (8 feet x 1 foot 6 inches) were carved by Kelly Kereama of Feilding. Inside 639 names of those who did not return are inscribed on 14 brass plates. All the concrete, both inside and out, was left unplastered and with the marks of the boxing to symbolise the strength of the Māori people. The three-storey building was planned as a community centre to serve all races and was opened in June 1964 by the Governor General, Sir Bernard Fergusson. Mayor Gilbert Rennie was also in attendance, as well as a number of Māori veterans.
