One of the famous ‘flag raising’ photos of the invading New Zealanders in 1914 shows a close-up view of some of the Courthouse woodwork.
This photo, from the Bunge Family Collection, was apparently taken from the balcony of the Hellesoe store and home on the opposite corner. A nearly identical photo by Alfred James Tattersall is held by the Alexander Turnbull Library, in Wellington, but shows the flag almost at ground level a few seconds before this picture was snapped.
