The Hawkes Bay Earthquake
Author: Robert McGregor
isbn: 9780958203005

The earthquake that struck Hawkes Bay, NZ, mid-morning on February 3, 1931 provided the sub-title "New Zealand's Greatest Natural Disaster" of this booklet. The 'quake claimed 285 victims and devastated the port city of Napier, created havoc in nearby Hastings and the surrounding area. The main shake registered 7.9 on the Richter Scale. This excellent monograph captures, through a magnificent selection of photographs, the region and its cities and towns before the disaster, in the immediate aftermath, during the fire that followed, the rescue work, the salvage, reconstruction and the rebuilding that led to Napier becoming one of the leading cities world-wide for art deco architecture. Also shown is the huge re-arrangement of the terrain near the quake centre.
