Masterton grandstand (1 o 2)

Masterton grandstand

The grandstand at the new Solway Park showgrounds in Masterton was opened in 1911. The stand seated 2,000 people, who could watch animals being judged, show-jumping, competitions such as wood chopping, and the Grand Parade. The ‘ladies’ retiring room’ at the back of the grandstand had the latest in dainty porcelain hand-basins. This is the architects’ drawing of the stand.
