This photograph of The Square Taken was in the vicinity of the Manawatu Standard building. In the foreground is the Lakelet (or Butterfly Lake), followed by the Phoenix Palms that once lived in The Square. The tall building towards the left centre is the Commercial Union Building, situated on the corner of Rangitikei and King Streets. It was completed in March 1973. In front of this is the former Bank of New Zealand. It was demolished for a new multi-storey BNZ.
