The paper itself was able to be printed in a limited form within 14 days of the earthquake but, because of the complete destruction of the premises of the “Hawkes Bay Herald” in Napier a merger was arranged whereby the “Tribune” became “The Hawkes Bay Herald Tribune”

It is noted that these editions are reprinted exactly as they were issued, including with some details that later proved to be inaccurate

Photos show the Tribune’s Offices and printing rooms before and after the quake. The printing press suffered only minor damage
