Cane, Thomas, Architect and Building Surveyor, Grain Agency Buildings, Christchurch. Mr. Cane is a native of Brighton, Sussex, where he was born in 1830. For many years he was in the employment of Sir Gilbert Scott, the celebrated architect of London. Mr. Cane came to Lyttelton in 1874, and was well known in the early days as Provincial Architect for Canterbury. He was appointed to the position soon after his arrival, and he held it until the abolition of the provinces; and during that time he designed a large number of important buildings in Canterbury.
