Freemasons Lodge, 42 Broadway

Freemasons Lodge, 42 Broadway

This building was opened in 1892 when the Freemasons moved from their previous premises near the corner of George and Main Street. It housed the Freemasons until it became inadequate for the increasing membership. A grander version was built in Broadway in 1931, which is now the Aqaba Restaurant.

 
Aerial tramway, Manawatu Gorge

Aerial tramway, Manawatu Gorge

Before the bridge at the eastern end of the Manawatu Gorge was completed in 1875, coach passengers had to complete their journey by aerial cage. This cage was suspended seventy feet above the river by a wire rope. Passengers would then continue their journey in another coach waiting for them on the other side. This is a stereoscopic image.
