Young Men’s Christian Association, Cambridge Terrace (between Cashel and Hereford Streets), Christchurch. [ca. 1885]
The building was designed by Thomas Stoddart Lambert (d. 1915) and built in 1884. Another, larger YMCA building on the corner was built 1908-1909, designed by William Paxton Clarkson (1863-1917) and Robert Anderson Ballantyne. The YMCA vacated the buildings at the beginning of 1967 and moved to a new site on the corner of Hereford Street and Rolleston Avenue. The old buildings were demolished Sept.-Nov. 1967 to make way for a new central police station.
