About this object
View of Clive Square from Napier Hill looking towards Cape Kidnappers, possibly taken in the early 1880s.

Further along Clive Square East are the Trinity Methodist Church and W Amner’s Coal and Fire Wood Depot. In the foreground of the photograph is Clive Square. The south end of Clive Square is surrounded by a picket fence (built 1886). Behind Clive Square is the intersection of Dickens Street and Munroe Street. Munroe Street is lined with young trees.

The roof of Main School is visible in the bottom left hand corner of the photograph. Cape Kidnappers is visible in the distance.
