Police Station, Oamaru



The local police station in Oamaru, North Otago, New Zealand. The building is still in use with a modern addition on the right. And that is all I can tell you about it, we were passing through and stopped so I could take a quick photograph.

  5. I think I've seen a photo of the courthouse. Is that a similar colour stonework? I love that colour and the architecture is lovely, too.
