A thorough, witty, incredibly detailed history of Wellington by telling the stories of its streets.

Fanny Louise Irvine-Smith was a teacher and lecturer in New Zealand history and Maori culture at Wellington Teachers College. She organised a petition to establish a library in Khandallah, which was successful, and  has a memorial collection of New Zealand books in her name bought from the royalties from her book. Ms Irvine-Smith died just before her book was published.
