Lyttelton 1864-2009


LARGE IMAGE OPENS IN A NEW WINDOW

145 years apart are a pair of north-easterly aspects of the corner of Norwich Quay and Canterbury Street.

All of the buildings in the 1864 image were destroyed by fire in 1870.

On the corner is Peter Cameron's 1851 Robin Hood Tavern and Billiard Rooms, subsequently reincarnated as the Royal Hotel.
