After a major earthquake in 1942, the Feilding Post Office tower was dismantled as it had suffered substantial damage. It was decided that the clock and bell would be stored until a new clock tower could be built. Most of the work was done by Army engineers. For more information, see Pioneering to Prosperity 1874-1974: A Centennial History of the Manchester Block.
