“Old picture-postcards of Wellington strike a soft spot because many of the views are recognisable despite the hundred-year gap, offering a glimpse of a half-familiar past. For anyone who’s ever spent time in Wellington, this book will make you look twice at cityscapes you take for granted. The charm and distinctive look of these pictures comes from their delicate colouring. They started life as black and white prints and were transformed by skilled European printers.”
