Auckland Savings Bank Building

Built in 1884 and located at 260 Queen Street, Auckland, this building was formerly owned by the Auckland Savings Bank. In 1977, the building became a McDonald's restaurant, the first in Auckland and only the second in New Zealand (behind Porirua). Much of the facade and interiors have been renovated and the original bank vault still remains in use as a stockroom.

Designed by Edward Bartley, the facade was inspired by Italian Renaissance palazzi, a style much used by commerce and banking during some eras. It is one of the few remaining buildings on Queen Street that is over a hundred years old.

Famous quotes containing the words building and/or bank:

    A publisher is a specialised form of bank or building society, catering for customers who cannot cope with life and are therefore forced to write about it.
    Colin Haycraft (b. 1929)

    A man’s labour is not only his capital but his life. When it passes it returns never more. To utilise it, to prevent its wasteful squandering, to enable the poor man to bank it up for use hereafter, this surely is one of the most urgent tasks before civilisation.
    William Booth (1829–1912)
