Urban Village: the Story of Ponsonby, Freeman's Bay & St Mary's Bay

Author(s): Jenny Carlyon & Diana Morrow


Ponsonby is one of New Zealand's most famous suburbs, the place where social and political change has fermented and fomented since its origins over 160 years ago. From Michael Joseph Savage to Che Fu, from the Hero Parade to the Polynesian Panthers, the fashion industry to cafe society, Ponsonby has led the way. This lively, authoritative history brings the colourful pageant of Ponsonby's past to light, and includes a wide range of images of the neighbourhood, then and now. First published September 2008.

Covers faded, some water staining to lower edges
