Once Upon a Village - A History of Lower Hutt, 1819 - 1965
Millar, David P.
New Zealand University Press for the Lower Hutt City Corporation, Wellington, 1972. Blue cloth with gold lettering. Binding tight. Shelf wear. May have inscriptions. David Millar traces the main developments of a NZ city with clarity. Politics, religion, geography, economics and social history all have their place. He aids the reader by placing this outline in a context of developments elsewhere within the country. He does so in an easily read manner, and lights it all in gentle humour. His research has unearthed stories full of human interest, some surprising, others disturbing – all of importance. Once Upon a Village is very readable. The author avoids long lists of forgotten names or defunct organizations. He has chosen photos to illustrate specific events within the text, and provides clear maps for the enquirer. There is an ample appendix of reference material for the more specific reader. - from the inside cover.
