Publisher: New Zealand Historic Places Trust, 2002, First Edition. SCARCE. Very good softback, no inscriptions, a little fading to covers, small crease on corner. 128 pages, many colour and b/w illustrations.

The small town of Oamaru on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island boasts the best preserved Victorian townscape in Australasia. Its remarkable reputation for colonial architecture - ornate stores and offices, sober public buildings, and grand country houses - is due mainly to one local firm, Forrester and Lemon. The work of these talented architects is the subject of this fascinating study of the development of a regional town in the late nineteenth century. This richly illustrated book situates outstanding local buildings in the context of architectural history and local cultural and social history, providing a fascinating glimpse into New Zealand's heritage from the 1870s and 1880s.
