a tram from Karori enters downtown Wellington, 1952

A view taken on Bowen Street which changed a lot in the 1960s -- the church at right made way for the Reserve Bank, the Bowen Hospital at its left (across The Terrace intersection) made way for the Treasury, the buildings at left made way for Broadcasting House, now a park, and the Beehive was built where the building at mid-left is.
