Manchester Street post-quake.

Caption

Looking south down Manchester Street from the Gloucester Street intersection  a few days after the Canterbury quake.  This section of road has been cordoned off and is being guarded by the Army to prevent the public entering the area. Visible at left is The Civic (former Civic offices for Christchurch City Council) and Tulsi Indian restaurant is at right.  The front of a police car can also be seen.

Three blocks away the doomed Manchester Courts building can be seen on the Manchester/Hereford corner. This building was eventually demolished.
