The Bank of New South Wales
The Bank of New South Wales , at Hokitika, stands at the corner of Camp Street and Revell Street. It was opened in the early days of the goldfields, and the Bank page 508 of New South Wales is said to be the first bank to be represented in Hokitika. The original building was occupied for forty years, but a handsome building of two stories was erected in 1905. It is of wood and iron, and contains a banking chamber, a manager's office, a strong room, and a residence of eight rooms. The staff includes a manager, and three officers.
