Battlefield (Central) Park when it was bare ground, 1920's, also a few views from a bit more recently. The park is in front of the Supreme Court.
This was the old Military Parade grounds, ( known as The Battle Field ) . - - The Building on the left is where Brodies now stand. - - On the right is the old Government Building used for many purposes. - The building that follows is the Old Rita's Store ( then called Rita's Mart ) and the Old Abdo's Store, thereafter Romacs. and now Central Commercial Shopping Marl ).
