“A PICTURE BOOK OF OLD AUCKLAND presents a startling collection of period photographs which capture dramatically the look and feel of Auckland during its golden years around the end of the 19th century. Before humans imposed themselves and their works too greatly upon the natural surroundings. When in Ellerslie horses out-numbered people. When Mount Eden and Epsom were well-known for the excellence of the wheat grown there. When St George’s and Freeman’s Bays were true beach-edged, fish-filled bays. It is almost as if these are pictures from another world, so different and intriguing are the scenes they offer us. Our loss in quality of life and beauty in the years since is emphasised by comparison with contemporary views from many of the same vantage points.”
