Victoria Square by Night

18 August 1959

Victoria Square by night, with statue of Queen Victoria. Looking at the Armagh Street frontage of Hay's department store that evolved into Farmers, then was later demolished for an apartment building which has also been demolished postquake. The lovely [National Bank] building to the left still stands at the Colombo Street corner.
