Listing Detail Tabs

''This book is a pictorial showcase of the
Wellington region from European settlement
to the present day. It is 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.
There are photographs from the reclamation
around Wellington Harbour to the pick-and-shovel
carving of roads up into the hilltop suburbs.
The bush-covered hills became residential retreats;
colonial wooden structures were slowly replaced
with solid high-rise blocks; tarseal highways were
once muddy tracks. From horses with four legs
to horsepower under the bonnet; the various
forms of public transport to the suburbs and to
the world at large; from a grass aero club runway
at Rongotai to the international airport of today:
this book provides a pictorial record.
Graham Stewart 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
in the book. The captions with the plates give
the reader historical facts and dates."
