This Wanganui photo is of the old Tea Kiosk first used out at Castlecliff Built in 1912, the Borough Council built the tea rooms, much used by people who took the tram to the seaside at weekends. The Council sold the kiosk in 1922 but it continued to be run privately until the 1930s when it was shifted to its current site off Puriri Street. It then served as the Gonville Sanatorium until the 1960s, later being turned into service as the club rooms for the Braves Softball Club
