Clyde Quay boat harbour Wellington

If you look for Clyde Quay on a Wellington map nowadays you won't find it; it is now Oriental Parade.  However, one remnant of the name, Clyde Quay School, still exists, although it was moved from its location from where the Fire Station was built in 1937 by a km or so further south to Elizabeth Street.

The Clyde Quay boat harbour is now the grandly named Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club.

This old postcard is another illustration that was considered for but not used in the book Wellington: a Capital century.
