Railway station booking office

Travellers queue to buy tickets at the Rotorua railway station booking office in the early 1930s. New Zealand's best-known tourist town, Rotorua, had been connected to Auckland by rail (via Frankton and Morrinsville) since 1894. The opening of the North Island main trunk in 1908 provided a further boost to tourist traffic in the region. The office is decorated with posters and maps advertising rail trips, and it also includes a Government Tourist Bureau kiosk.
