A hard back book of 128 pages, " New Zealand Pub Crawl " was written by Douglas Baglin & Yvonne Austin and published by Beckett Sterling in 1984 as a 1st Edition.

22 x 29 cms ; illustrations ; good condition.

From the earliest days of New Zealand's history, the pub has been a feature of the New Zealand landscape. Nothing now remains of the earliest grog shops - leaking canvas tents and wretched huts - but their offspring can be found in most corners of the country.

And just as the New Zealander developed a distinctive national character, so the New Zealand pub assumed a style all its own. But not just a single style, for there is almost as much variety in the shape, size and character of our pubs as there is in their faithful customers.

It is these differences that the authors have captured in these pages. Every pub has its history, has played a role in the life of its neighbourhood ( whether inner city suburb or country town ), and has provided companionship, solace and refreshment for travellers and regulars alike.

Modernisation and real estate speculation have often sounded the death knell for many pubs. Others have fought back and survived : former ' blood houses ' have redecorated their once dingey bars and country hostelries have been restored.

Our pubs deserve looking after. They've been abused and criticised, but undeniably they're here to stay. Increasingly, their contribution to New Zealand's heritage is being appreciated. Their architectural styles are being recognised as precious relics of our past.

Their stories and legends are being brought out of the closet and dusted up for public viewing. And, perhaps most importantly, our pubs provide convivial and attractive places in which to relax in good company.

New Zealand Pub Crawl is a warm, nostalgic tribute to one of our great institutions - the New Zealand Pub.
