Colour Photograph: ANZ Bank Chambers, Intersection of High, Lichfield and Manchester Streets, 1985
One landscape colour photograph taken in 1985 showing the ANZ Bank Chambers building at the intersection of High, Lichfield and Manchester Streets, Christchurch. Businesses shown include The Supa Sandwich and Para.
The ANZ Bank Chambers building in this photograph was located on the corner of High Street, Lichfield Street and Manchester Street in central Christchurch. The odd angle of the site created by the intersection of Lichfield and High Street dictated the flat-iron style of this building. The chambers were built in 1915 to match the same style as the neighbouring ANZ Bank building, built in 1905. The large copper dome on the top of the building collpased during the 22 February 2011 earthquake and the building was subsequently demolished.
