Holden's Buildings, Hastings

Holden's BuildingsHastings on New Zealand's North Island suffered greatly during the 1931 earthquake which also greatly affected the nearby town of Napier.

Much of Hastings was rebuilt in Spanish Mission or Art Deco style.

Holden's Buildings from 1934 is a fine Art Deco example. It was deigned by Albert Garnett and carries the year of construction in a beautiful Art Deco styled plaque.

The corner fo the buildings bears the name 'Nutter' and is therefore known as Nutter's Corner.
