Colour Photograph: Haralds Building, Lichfield Street, 1985
One landscape colour photograph taken in 1985 showing Harald's Fabrics at 80 Lichfield Street, Christchurch.
The Haralds building, located at 80 Lichfield Street was erected in 1881 for the Butterworth brothers, who ran a wholesale drapery business. It was designed in the Italian palazzo style by William Armson, one of the foremost architects in nineteenth century New Zealand. The Haralds building was an important example of Victorian commercial buildings in Christchurch. It formed part of the cluster of Victorian and Edwardian commercial buildings in the Lichfield Street/High Street area and was an important part of the local townscape. Unfortunately, the Haralds building had to be demolished following the 22 February 2011 earthquake in Christchurch because of extensive damage.
