Christchurch Contrast

A pair of photographs, taken within the same hour and from vantage points barely twenty metres apart, that epitomise the best of the historic and contemporary aspects of the city.

A westerly view of the Provincial Council buildings from across the Avon River at Oxford Terrace between Armagh and Gloucester Streets.

An easterly view of high rise buildings facing on to Victoria Square from the south side of Armagh Street, between Oxford Terrace and Colombo Street.
