Our City O-Tautahi is a Queen Anne style building by architect Samuel Hurst Seagar in the heart of Christchurch. It sits aside the beautiful Avon River and is just down the road from the stunning Christchurch Cathedral. I visited here in 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was such a shock to see the devastation earlier this year. This particular building is now shored up with heavy beams waiting for the aftershocks to finally stop so that it can be restored.
