Dunedin Station

Dunedin Railway Station.
Imposing edifice
Built to impress
Victorian sensibilities

This building perhaps embodies Dunedin's wealthy inheritance.
During the city's most prosperous years this railway station was the country's busiest,
handling up to 100 trains each day.
Though there have been many debates about whether the building is actually beautiful or not,
the overall effect is undeniably grandiose and the station is New Zealand’s most photographed building.
Construction began in 1903 and the station was officially opened in 1906. ~ Bernard
