Peter McIntrye’s Wellington

By Peter McIntrye

In GREAT Condition

Pen and wash monochrome drawings of Wellington in the 1970s, with tipped in watercolour plates.

Wisdom and understanding, according to the book of Proverbs, stand on the top of high places. How apt a site Wellington is, then, for a capital city, perched on a multitude of high places around a majestic harbour, it's university crowning the Kelburn hills, and New Zealand's parliament rising on the eminence above the old town centre.

WELLINGTON captures all that is characterful about this city, a city that mixes a certain cosmopolitan glamour with a haphazard commercial centre (five "main" streets at last count) and includes a climate which, the source of much national humour, loyal inhabitants prefer to call "disease-free and bracing".

Visitors to Wellington will find this book a rich momento of a proud city, and her residents will delight in Peter McIntyre's portrayal of his bustling, cosmopolitan city of the Strait. - from the inside cover.

Publisher: AH and AW Reed, Wellington, 1975.

Binding: Hard cover with dust jacket
