Isn’t she lovely National Hotel Cambridge New Zealand

National Hotel, Cambridge New Zealand
The Nash, Lake Street, Cambridge New Zealand fresh in her new livery beams into the afternoon sun, today, Saturday the 29th of February 2011. After a period of neglect and abandonment tenants of the new (and local) owners are due to move into the refurbished building toward the end of February 2011. As regular readers know the National Hotel has a special place in my heart.

National Hotel Cambridge New Zealand

Fred Potts’ sadly neglected National Hotel in the heart of Cambridge CBD. My great-grandfather Fred Potts built the National Hotel in 1912 after fire destroyed the original wooden 1867 building.
