The photo location is Hastings - the caption is wrong. Lord Bledisloe and party are standing in the intersection of Russell and Heretaunga Streets, Hastings. The rubble was caused by the five-storey Grand Hotel's collapse, sending some 600,000 bricks earthbound. For more on the Grand Hotel, see YouTube, Michael Fowler, Grand Hotel, Hastings.
