The circa 1926 Ford Model T on the right appears to have a diamond in the middle of its number plate. This dates the photo to between the middle of 1928 and the middle of 1929. The car int he middle of the street is an Overland from about 1924-26.

WE LOVE THE LIBARY☺?

A window into a Christchurch I have never seen. It's changed so much! Love the combination of cars, bicycles, pedestrians and trams in this image.
