Canterbury Provincial Government building

This building was originally built in two parts between 1858 and 1859. The tower was added on after the L shaped building was already completed. In later years extensive stone built buildings were added on either side.

I think this building is safe from the demolition ball at the moment even though they did suffer bad earthquake damage. the buildings are the only purpose-built provincial government buildings still in existence in New Zealand.
