City and Peninsula
Text by John Wilson

The Historic Places of Christchurch and Banks Peninsula

City and Peninsula provides a refreshing new look at the historic buildings and sites of Christchurch, Lyttelton Akaroa and Banks Peninsula. Christchurch is the largest city on New Zealand's South Island and has some of the country's most historically significant and architecturally interesting old buildings. The rugged hills and secluded bays of Banks Peninsula, now part of the City, were the scene of important early events and Akaroa is one of the country's best preserved colonial villages. Lyttelton retains many of the features of its past as the region's port and a town with a distinct identity of its own.

A local historian and two professional photographers have combined to create a generously illustrated book with an informative text that covers the history of the region from the earliest years of Polynesian settlement through to the middle of the 20th century. The outstanding buildings and most significant sites in the region appear in this book. It also features humbler buildings and sites that tell of the daily lives in the past of the region's ordinary citizens.
