About this object
View of Marine Parade looking towards Bluff Hill thought to have been taken in 1900. On the extreme left of the image is the band rotunda, donated to the Borough of Napier by Neal and Close in 1894. A cannon is displayed to one side of this feature. Immediately behind the band rotunda, the Borough Council Chambers (built 1874) and the Napier Courthouse (designed by William Henry Clayton, completed 1875) are visible. In the centre of the image is the esplanade. The left side of the esplanade is lined with Norfolk Island Pines and park benches. Tree guards enclose the bases of each of the trees. The sea wall and the beach are visible on the right side of the image. Several men pose along the esplanade.
