City And Peninsula provides a refreshing new look at the historic buildings and sites of Christchurch, Lyttelton, Akaroa and Banks Peninsula. Christchurch is the largest city on New Zealand's South Island and has some of the country's most historically significant and architecturally interesting old buildings. The rugged hills and secluded bays of Banks Peninsula, now part of the City, were the scene of important early events and Akaroa is one of the country's best preserved colonial villages. Lyttelton retains many of the features of its past as the region's port and a town with a distinct identity of its own. 208 pages, approx 290 photographs. First published June 2007.
