Point of Interest Details

A crowd gathers on Jervois Quay in front of the gates to Queen’s Wharf during the 1913 strike. The Wellington Harbour Board’s boardroom was on the first floor of the building on the right, which is now the Museum of Wellington City and Sea. The Harbour Board’s wharf offices were in the building opposite. The ship Northern can be seen in the background.

Here is the waterfront itself, scene of so many of the confrontations of 1913.

We end our walk at the Wellington Museum, which has materials on many of the stories covered in this tour.
