Description

Christchurch: A Pictorial History by David Johnson. 'Christchurch, many people say, is a little bit of England with its cathedral, parks, groomed gardens and River Avon. Yet the city has always had its own distinctive character, as David Johnson shows in this fascinating collection of nostalgic photographs. In more than 200 hundred pictures, with detailed captions, he traces the Garden City's history since the 1860s. More than a record of the city's growth and the changing landscape, however, the book also portrays Cantabrians at work and play through the years - from people in factories and on the shop floor, to early bathers at Sumner Beach and pictures of Hagley Park. A LARGE BOOK THAT WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL FREIGHT.
