The Auckland Ferry BuildingMaker
"The Auckland Ferry Building sits astride Auckland's gateway from the sea, and is an Edwardian jewel in an increasingly utilitarian city of concrete and glass. This book celebrates the building's re-opening, after extensive refurbishing, in 1988. Illustrated by more than 70 photographs, it tells a story of waterfront politics, ferries, the coming of the Harbour Bridge, and the preservation of an Auckland architectural treasure"--Back cover. Contents: Auckland waterfront, 1905 -- Difficult decision -- At last it was built -- Tenants, clocks and ferries -- Railways and plumbing -- Twenties tenants, thirties chills, and the clock again -- Waiting for the bridge -- Dark days -- The return to favour.
