THE GEAR. A History of the Gear Meat Preserving & Freezing Company 1865 to 1981. By Warwick Johnston. In Large Softcovers, First Edition 2012, Black and White Photographs, illustrations, maps, 126 pages, Published By The Petone Historical Association Petone wellington.
A Very Good Plus copy.
'I have set the book out in a progressive format beginning with biographical details of James Gear himself, moving on to a brief historical analysis of Petone and then a more chronological account of the Company itself. I wanted to look at its workings and its performances over its long tenure adjacent to Petone beach. Specifically, I then examined three unusual yet quite remarkable components of the Company, namely the storage hulk Jubilee and Petone Wharf, Gear island, and the Beach railway. All three had very different impacts of the Gear but all were an intergral part of its workings' (On back cover). Fascinating wellington History.
