Thames (NZ): Long lost buildings

While hunting the papers for some WWI death notices, there was an interesting report on the demolition of old Thames buildings.  Never ceases to amaze me how we used to have so many two storied buildings! This looks like a grand old residence. Does anyone recognise it? The location and who owned/lived in it?
If you have any photos of Thames buildings that have been demolished, please contact me and I will feature them on future blogs.

"Another of the older buildings in Pollen Street, Thames disappears. No takers for free firewood were visible on Saturday afternoon."
