In September 2010 and in February 2011, Christchurch was struck by earthquakes of such force that the landmarks and landscape of the city and its surrounds were forever altered. The essence of Christchurch, its elegance and charm, are captured evermore by artist Gwenda Turner in this truly memorable book. Using a blend of old photographs, mementos and original paintings, this book is both a tribute to and a celebration of the Garden City. The history and famous landmarks of Christchurch have been recreated through wonderful panoramas: journey along the tram route to rediscover and remember the delights of the city as it was.
