About this scrapbook page:
The Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings are the only purpose-built provincial government buildings still in existence in New Zealand.

This small cluster of historic buildings in central Christchurch are treasured by the city, both for their historical importance and their beauty.

Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings (1858 to 1865) were designed by Benjamin Mountfort, the leading Gothic Revival architect in Canterbury.

They suffered significant damage in the recent earthquakes.

Christchurch and surrounding areas will never be the same again - a very graphic view of the devastation caused by this earthquake.

How has the recovery gone? I'm sure it had a horrific economic impact as well. Terrific photo-journalism!
