Majoribank Street ...#85
This is looking West down Majoribank Street towards the city. You can pick out the Majestic Tower and the black State Insurance building. This image shows well the hilly nature of Wellington and the mix of old and new. Majoribank Street runs from the western side of Mt Victoria and the Town Belt ( a public green area) down to the start of Courtenay Place .. the Embassy and Downstage Theatres. Note the older power and telephone utilities strung up on the lamp post. Most newer suburbs have all these services underground.
