Description
Bus fleet in front of the Government Buildings on Knox Street. This stone building was built for public purposes, on the south side of Knox Street between Victoria Street and Anglesea Street. The building was completed in 1913. Sometimes referred to as the Government Buildings, or Public Works buildings, it housed the Defence, Agricultural, Public Works, and Lands and Surveys departments. The Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages and the Inspector of Machinery also had offices here. The building has long since been demolished but remnants of the wall remain. The vehicles appear to be Brockway truck chassis and are said to have been bodied by Pomeroy's of Hamilton. The Government Buildings were situated on the south side of Knox Street. They have since been demolished but remnants of the wall remain standing.
