About this object
The photograph shows the Napier Central Business District looking towards Te Mata Peak. On the left is the Hawke's Bay Club and opposite on the corner of Marine Parade and Browning Street is the Napier Courthouse. Next to the Courthouse on Browning Street is the Athenaeum. The Hawke's Bay County Council building is on the corner of Herschell and Browning Streets. The Masonic Hotel and Market Reserve buildings are both visible. They were built after the 3 February 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake. Still visible is evidence of devastation caused by the earthquake.

Norfolk Island pines are lining Marine Parade.
