On the Way Down


A tender has been let for the demolition of the old Nelson Post Office and staff of the contracting firm, Hall Demolition, Wellington, began work on the building earlier this month. Their first job was the removal of the four clock faces and bells in the tower and the slate roof.


Nelson's sputnick, formerly an old-type ventilation system on the roof, and some of the demolition gang, Ken Graham, Harry Yardley, Danny Hall and Victor Chantler.
