The old Bay Of Plenty Times building has been broken down to the ground to make way a $25 million three-storey building.
I can't imagine the stories (real and created) and news that have passed through these buildings. I do clearly remember as a school kid visiting this building and been shown the typesetting process where lead letter stamps were all set in rows letter by letter to make up the printing stamp for the press.
In the background one of our newer Tauranga buildings. Meanwhile upfront history slips quietly away.
