The Durie Hill Tower in Whanganui took six years to build and finally opened in 1925. It was dedicated to the memory of members of the armed services from the town of Whanganui and district who fell in what was then called the Great War, the massive world-wide conflict of 1914-1918. The tower has 176 steps from base to top floor level, and a height of about 35 metres from ground level to the top of the parapet. The photographer is unknown and the image was found in one of the Whanganui Historical Society photograph albums.
