Quinn´s Arcade

 This is believed to be New Zealand's first indoor shopping mall, built between 1905 and 1907 in Waimate.  The original owner was William Quinn, Makikihi landowner and businessman, born 1828 in Northern Ireland, died July 1 1914 at Makikihi, it was converted to Arcadia Theatre between 1918 to 1920. It is an amazing building I wish I could have seen it on the inside.
