The Press First Wirth the News: An Illustrated History
by Mike Crean

Paperback, 2011, 176pages, new with remainder mark

The Press in Christchurch celebrates its 150th anniversary in May 2011, with an accompanying exhibition at the Canterbury Museum which will run for four months. This book is a fond look back at how the popular newspaper started life, how it developed over the years, and how it dealt with the major news stories during that time. Packed full with historical and contemporary photographs this book shows the life so far of an iconic newspaper and the communities it has represented over time. The text is brief and to the point and will be of interest to general readers with an interest in Canterbury as well as those with an interest in the media. Chapters are: Prelude - the Canterbury earthquake; Canterbury through the years; Owners, buildings and titles; Be first with the news; Great characters; Most notable writers; Stories from behind the scenes; The big stories - how The Press has covered major events over the last 150 years; The Press today; and Press history timeline.
