Then and Now: Taranaki, East Coast,

Author(s): Mccrystal John

Rotorua Books

In an engaging pictorial tour this book compares old and modern Taranaki, East Coast, Hawkes Bay, Wanganui and Manawatu. Historical and contemporary photographs with detailed captions bring to life a cross-section of social and economic history and reflect the changing character, appearance and fortunes of cities, towns and communities from the 19th century to the present day. Author John McCrystal's whimsical and informative text traces the transitions and transformations through times of prosperity, war and depression, the rise and fall of industries and changing fashions in transport, commerce, architecture, social behaviour and apparel.
