How we were – central Christchurch 1978

Map of Christchurch I suppose Google Maps and Google Earth have taken over now, but I do love maps like this with the buildings drawn on them in 3D. Use the Zoomify feature to look closely at this map of central Christchurch in 1978 from our digital map collection.

The detail is amazing and you can see what buildings were on the site of the Central Library (which was not built until 1982).
