Historical Notes: Designed in the 1880s, and originally built as a central prision for the Wellington Province. It was intended to have five radiating wings like the one shown here, but the rest of the structure was never built. The building was never used as a prision, and in about 1906 it was handed over to the army and became the Alexandra Barracks
