Parliament postcard, 1907

Parliament postcard, 1907

This view of Parliament Buildings is from the Molesworth Street main entrance. This postcard must have been produced just before the fire of 1907, for it bears the stamp added later, 'DESTROYED BY FIRE, December 11th, 1907'. It is perhaps the most realistic rendition, indicating the difference between the older wooden buildings and the plaster-faced library, but whether these are the exact colours of the buildings is not certain.

Hello, I have a small (30 or so) collection of postcards and booklets from N.Z. from around 1904 - 1911. Many are of nature and Maori's. The collection was from a Canadian who taught at a school in N.Z.. Do they have any worth?. Thank you, Sue
