Thames (NZ): Treasury Archives 20th October 2013

All was quiet at The Treasury & Archives today, some restoration work completed on the footpath leading to the main front doors. We eagerly await the next finishing touches...

Below is a view of the rooftops from Broad Street, of the two buildings that make up The Treasury and the new Archives building.
