Mobile Library at Night- Elm Tree Court stop on Russell Street

Mobile Library at Night- Elm Tree Court stop on Russell Street

Mobile Library at night. Interior and exterior of Mobile Library- note the "steampunk" graphics on the interior and exterior design by local artist Emmanuel. Taken at the Elm Tree Court on Russell Street stop on 21 June 2017. The Elm Tree Court stop was part of the evening schedule of stops (Monday- Thursday, from 5- 7pm) that were shifted to a new Saturday stop timetable under a review of the Mobile Library stops. The review found the evening stops to have a low and declining usage, while the regular weekend stop on Sundays had the highest visitor rates of all Mobile Library days. Elm Tree Court remained a regular stop after the review in the Wednesday timetable, from 4.15- 4.45pm. The new Saturday stops for the Mobile Library began on 14 April, 2018 and heralded a seven day service for the Mobile Library.

Stairs of Lindos

Stairs of Lindos

View from the bottom of the informally nicknamed 'Stairs of Lindos', aka Summerhill Stairs. The 222 steps curve down the Anzac Cliffs, from Vaucluse Heights, to the Manawatū River below. Nicknamed the 'Stairs of Lindos' in reference of the climb to the acropolis and medieval fortress of Lindos, on the Greek island of Rhodes in the Aegean Sea. Parts of that stairway have no railings and neither have these, yet.

A new sign was created by the Palmerston North City Council, for the workers's memorial at Memorial Park on Napier Road, Palmerston North. It was installed on 6 April 2018, and is to be launched on Workers' Memorial Day on 28 April.
