This 1971 view of Wellington’s Cuba St pedestrian mall looks south towards the central fountain and play area. The middle part of Cuba St was closed off to form the mall in 1969. The fountain, initially called a ‘water mobile’ but later known as ‘the bucket fountain’, was designed by architects and town planning consultants Burren and Keen, and has become a well-known Wellington feature.
