Author(s): Graham Stewart
From basic huts on the foreshore to a city of 1.5 million, New Zealand's super city has had a remarkable history of change and development over the past 170 years. This book shows the dramatic changes and puts the reader into the picture showing the past coupled with the present using graphic photographs taken over the decades. Some pioneering colour photographs taken by the author when colour photography was in its infancy feature along with many classic photographs recorded on glass plates over 100 years ago.
