Researcher comments/remarks
Three years after the 2010-2011 earthquakes there are still many uncertainties about which buildings can or will be retained. These buildings, or parts of buildings, sit behind safety fencing awaiting decisions from their owners, insurers and engineers. The former British Hotel and Lyttelton Times Buildings appear to be in this category. Like many historic buildings, these are looked upon with much fondness by locals; a “Save the British Hotel” Facebook page shares memories of evenings spent in the hotel.
