Happy 162nd birthday to the city of Christchurch!
Christchurch was established as a city by Royal Charter on July 31 1856, the first city to be established in New Zealand. Being ‘chartered’ as a city meant that a seat was established for a bishop in that region
Here are some photos from early Christchurch.
