Opening the library and art gallery

Opening the library and art gallery

This programme was printed for the opening of Auckland’s public library, art gallery and municipal offices in a new purpose-built edifice in 1887. Designed in the French Chateau style, the building – now housing only the art gallery – still has a commanding presence in the central city.
