Former Post Office Building

Former Post Office Building

This building was the first purpose built Post Office in Palmerston North, sited on the corner of The Square and Main Street in 1889. In 1906 when the new Chief Post Office was built the building was first moved back on the site to make way for the new Post Office, and then later was turned to face Main Street. It was used by various Government departments for offices until, in 1988 it was deemed redundant and was offered to the Palmerston North City Council. In 1989 the City Council resited the building to the Esplanade Gardens and it became a cafe.

"Difficult to Reach Foxton That Way" Flooding on the Palmerston North - Himatangi Road

This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 21 May, 1959. "About 300 acres of farmlands flooded to the north of Rangiotu included half a mile of the main Palmerston North-Himatangi road, which last evening was closed to traffic. This morning several cars were successful in their venture across. All stock has been removed to higher levels, and nearby farmers were up at all hours last night in case the flooding became really serious." Other photos associated with this article was published on the same day.
