This is an auction for WELLINGTON: PORTRAIT OF THE REGION by Graham Stewart.

"WELLINGTON: PORTRAIT OF THE REGION is a pictorial showcase of the Wellington region from European settlement to the present day. It is a visual parade through the decades, showing at a glance the growth and development of New Zealand's capital city, together with the cities of Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt, Porirua and the surrounding districts. There are photographs from the reclamation around Wellington Harbour to the pick-and-shovel carving of roads up into the hilltop suburbs. The bush-covered hills became residential retreats; colonial wooden structures were slowly replaced with solid high-rise blocks; tarseal highways were once muddy tracks. From horses with four legs to horsepower under the bonnet; the various forms of public transport to the suburbs and to the world at large; from a grass aero club runway at Rongotai to the international airport of today: this book provides a pictorial record. Graham Stewart has visited every location featured and photographed the same scene today to show the changes that have taken place over the decades and to give the reader an instant recognition of the archival pictures featured in the book. The captions with the plates give the reader historical facts and dates."
