Glimpse Wellington’s past through these delightful, full-colour picture postcards.

SKU: 978-1-877448-24-9 Categories: , ,


Old picture-postcards of Wellington strike a soft spot because many of the views are recognisable despite the hundred-year gap, offering a glimpse of a half-familiar past. The charm and distinctive look of these pictures comes from their delicate colouring. They started life as black and white prints and were transformed by skilled European printers.
