ODT Tribute to the restoration of Chapman's Terrace
A recent opinion piece in the Otago Daily Times by Paul Tankard proposes that a prize be instituted for the city's most sensitively restored building and mentions the loving restoration of Chapman's Terrace, the offices of McCrimmon Law, which is now nearing completion.
Prior to embarking on the restoration, Fiona McCrimmon undertook a great deal of historical research about the building through the DCC and the Hocken Library. Part of the materials supplied were articles from the ODT dating back to 1881. Interesting to think that in 100 years time someone may read Paul Tankard's respectful piece about the current restoration!
