"ON THE EDGE OF OUR CITY takes the reader on a nostalgic journey down the streets and by-ways of Wellington's suburban past. From the stormy seas of Cook Strait to the country roads that lead to our suburbs we journey along time. Fishermen gather at Island Bay for the photographer in the early 1920's; personalities and shopkeepers pose for the photographers on the sidewalks of Adelaide Road and Riddiford Street; the Hermit of Houghton Bay stands before the entrance to his cave; Wellington's D Battery play war games on the flats of Miramar in 1898; Rongotai Aerodrome is in its infancy during the Depression days of the 1930s; Athletic Park, the shrine of Wellington and New Zealand rugby is visited and a host of locals pass by in this eighth book by J M and B M Kenneally on changing times in the life of our suburbs."
