Scene on the Street: Hamilton’s CBD 1900 - 2000

25 August - 25 November 2018

Free entry

The CBD is the beating heart of our city. Since the 19th century, people from Hamilton and surrounding districts have come to town not only to work and do business, but to shop, eat, see plays and films, gather in support of political causes and attend civic events. This exhibition presents a selection of images, oral histories, and ephemera drawn from the Hamilton City Libraries Heritage Collection and the Waikato Museum Collection.
