#1173 ... Wharf Parking

Cars parked on the wharf ... looking south west towards the city. The lower old building in the centre of the photo is the Dominion Farmers Institute building ... now known as Seabridge House. As I understand it this was the first reinforced concrete building built in Wellington by Fletcher Construction in 1920. The NZ Reserve Bank used to be here and in the basement they still have the large money safes. Tomorrows post will be a closer view of this landmark building.
