Elizabeth Street Timaru from Stafford House / [Caroline Bay]

About this object

A pair of photographs mounted on either side of a backing board. One is entitled "Elizabeth Street Timaru from Stafford House," dating from circa 1905, while the other is of Caroline Bay taken from the north end looking south/easterly, and is dated 1909.

The Elizabeth Street image depicts a horse drawn vehicle travelling down the street, away from the photographer, while other people appear on the sidewalk. CH Barrie's store can be seen on the left. The intersection with Grey Road can also be seen.

The Caroline Bay image looks across the bay with the Hydro Grand Hotel, houses and buildings on the horizon. A horse cart team appears on the beach, as do the bathing sheds. A handwritten date on mount beneath the image reads "24.5.09".
