Wellington Wellington…
A History
Michael Fowler

Large hardcover with jacket, 104 pages, 1st edition published 1981 by Mallinson Rendel Publishers, very good condition in very good jacket.

Throughout the book Michael Fowler’s enthusiasm for his city shines through, beginning with his account of its founding in 1840, right through to the building of the new Town Hall in 1981.
The personalities, the administration, the architecture, the relationship of the city with Government throughout the years, are all described in Michael Fowler’s inimitable style. His feeling for the people of this cosmopolitan city, his comprehension of its history and his sense of humour all illuminate the book, as do the illustrations he has produced to complement it.
