Armagh Street, Christchurch
May 1860
Barker, Alfred Charles (Dr), 1819-1873

Looking west along Armagh Street in Christchurch, May 1860. Riccarton bush is in the left background. The long building with three dormers, under the left end of the bush is the Plough Inn. Taken by Alfred Charles Barker.

Cranmer Square and Hagly Park are in the background, but not visible.

The keeper of the Plough Inn was J Dilloway, who was also a gunsmith.

The last house on the right, going towards the river, is near the corner of Armagh Terrace and Park Terrace, and was at some time occupied by Sir Henry Wigram (1857-1934).

Note on back of file print reads: "Second house from right in background is Thacker's `Guardian' Printery where the first sessions of the Prov Govt were held - 1853-4."

This photograph is published in Johannes C Andersen's book `Old Christchurch in Picture and Story', 1949, page 235.
