10 Charlemont Street, Ranfurly, Central Otago, New Zealand

Ranfurly, named after the fifth Earl of Ranfurly, the 15th Governor General of New Zealand, is the service centre for the Maniototo area. When the Central Otago railway line was constructed, it bisected the Maniototo Plain, and Ranfurly became the central point of the line. The County Offices, banks and other services were moved from Naseby to Ranfurly and from the 1930s the town developed rapidly, adopting the Art Deco building style.
