An Historical Overview of Lambton Harbour
Written by D J Pyle
Half zine, half book, half pamphlet, An Historical Overview of Lambton Harbour is a light but rigorous exploration of the history of the Wellington Harbour from pre-colonial times to nowadays.
Described by the author as a "fact sheet for the newcomer" D J Pyle's austere writing sternly drives the conversation towards the darker, bloodier sides of our collective history with an exclusive focus on the events that happened on Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Packed with archival images, this book is a modest invitation for historical curiosity and refrains, always, from providing a definitive answer.
