Listing Detail Tabs

First book is: Port and People - Century at the Port of Napier.

The Story of The Port of Napier 1875 - 1975 by H.K. Stevenson for the Hawke's Bay Harbour Board in its centennial year. It is dedicated to everybody who, over the last 100 years, planned and worked to build an all weather deepwater port for Hawke’s Bay.

Excerpts from Author's Note:
From within this background many intriguing stories emerge. And some vital and colourful personalities, particularly in times when the Harbour Board was racked by acrimonious debate, personal abuse and stalemate.

The story of the Port of Napier is, of course, complementary to that of the City itself.

The story has many satellites – the shipping, endowment land development, railways, farming activities and many others. Each has a story to tell within itself; and each story contributes to the whole. Except in the case of shipping (where this story is told in “Log Book” as an appendix to each chapter) the other facets have been interwoven into the general narrative.

The 352 page large hardcover book measuring about 225mm x 310mm x 30mm is well illustrated and it was written by H.K. Stevenson and was published by The Hawke's Bay Harbour Board in 1977.
