Traces of the Past: The Bank

This time for Traces of the Past, I thought I would take you to my home town of Grafton. A relatively new place, Grafton was first settled by Europeans in 1849 and the City was established. There are still some buildings that have survived from the later part of the 19th Century. The CBC Bank is one that still stands. Built in 1877 from stone and has lace iron work. A very impressive building for its day. One of my favourite buildings.
