Victoria Square

This image must be early 1900s (maybe someone can date). I like it because it shows both the early motor car and a hanson cab. Also, there’s an ice cream vendor. Looking at previous early images, there frequently seems to be an ice cream vendor on that spot or directly outside the Council House. Viv.

Glad you like them John. Victoria Square is back to normal again now that the German Christmas Market has closed again.

Top of Christchurch Passage from Waterloo Street. Steps closed apart from access to Nando's Staff. But did see a man go down.
