Colour Photograph: High Street, View North From Corner of Tuam Street, 1985
One landscape colour photograph taken in 1985 showing the view north along High Street, Christchurch from A J White's on the corner of Tuam Street. Businesses shown include A J White's, Westpac Bank, Canterbury Savings Bank (later Westpac) Tower, Para and the High Street Post Office.
Built in 1932, the former High Street Post Office was designed by government architect J T Mair in the striped classical style. It became the premises of Alice in Videoland and was one of the few heritage buildings along High Street to survive the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes.
