By Matthew Wright

Availability: Out of stock

Much of New Zealand's history since the arrival of Europeans has been captured through photographs. Part of a new historic series, Historic Photos of Hawke's Bay and East Coast, by historian Matthew Wright, showcases many of the provinces's important places as well as events, both great and small. These beautifully reproduced images tell the story of Hawke's Bay and the East Coast, their people and places, with a vividness only historic photographs can offer. 

252 x 252 mm, 160 pages, duotone, hardback with jacket
