Government Departmental Offices, Wellington, New Zealand, 1876

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3089B/28

Scope and Contents

364 x 257 mm. A view of the Government Building on Lambton Quay with three figures standing in the roadway in front. This is the handsome building which superseded the offices shown in Y3089B/27. Finished around 1876 (to the design of W.H. Clayton), it is a wooden structure looking deceptively like stone. The chimneys seen here were later removed in the interests of architectural harmony.


  • Creation: 1876
