About this object
View of Hastings, possibly taken at the intersection of Railway Road and Eastbourne Street around 1880.

A bar is located on the left side of the street. The name 'Kelly' appears above the door indicating that this may be the Hastings Hotel, which was operated by John Kelly in the early 1880s. A group of men and a horse drawn carriage wait outside the bar.

Beck and Company (general merchants and drapers), A T Haultain and Company (stock and station agents), a tailor, and a bakery are among the businesses that are visible down the right side of the street.

St Matthew’s Church is visible further along the street. Located on the corner of King Street and Eastbourne Street, the church was built in wood with two front towers. The first service was held at the church in 1877.
