Wellington: Portrait of the region
By Graham Stewart

The old cliche that every picture is worth a thousand words makes this volume a book of 368,000 words before you start reading the captions and the Wellington Region Time Line section!

This is a pictorial showcase of the Wellington region from European settlement to the present day, 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.

The author 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.

The captions with the plates give the reader historical facts and dates. The Time Line section is a book in itself for references. The author's concept has been to create a timeless archival, balanced record of the region in photographic form.
