Author: Geoffrey Rice    Publisher: Canterbury University Press

The story of Christchurch's main port and one of its oldest boroughs. From the 'Pilgrim Port' of the 1850s, with its single jetty to receive thousands of Canterbury Assocaition settlers to the bustling modern port town of today. This is the story of Canterbury's main port and one of its oldest boroughs. Using many previously unpublished images from the collections of the Canterbury and Lyttelton museums, this book weaves the diverse themes of port and town into a narrative, noting key events and explaining patterns of change across 150 years.
