Notes on the Geography of New Zealand: Christchurch: Photo 15

world pictures New Zealand: Christchurch

Many of the Mountfordian buildings are in grievous shape. Here's the building (at 159 Oxford Terrace) called Our City or O-Tautahi. From 1887 to 1024 it housed the city council. Later the Chamber of Commerce used the space and, still later, the building became an exhibition and events center. In 2015 it was propped up pending restoration. Estimates were that the work would continue across the city for decades and cost NZ$40 billion.
