The Hawke’s Bay Club (designed by Walter Phillip Finch, built 1906) and the Napier Courthouse (designed by William Henry Clayton, completed 1875) are visible on the extreme right of the image. The Borough Council Chambers (built 1874) and the Masonic Hotel (designed by Prouse & Wilson, completed 1932) is visible further down Marine Parade. A young man poses in the foreground with his dog.
