A Fine Prospect: A History of Remuera, Meadowbank and St Johns

Jenny Carlyon

Publisher:Random House New Zealand Ltd

Remuera is, and always has been, one of Auckland's best addresses. From earliest times wealthy merchants built grand houses on great estates, with magnificent views out to the harbour and gulf islands. Theirs was a social milieu of balls, debutantes, garden parties, private schools, society marriages, rigorous observed hierarchies, gentility and not a little aspiration. But there's much more to the neighbourhood than this fabled blue-blooded stereotype. In this richly illustrated and comprehensively researched history of Remuera, Meadowbank and St Johns, Jenny Carlyon and Diana Morrow record the sense of noblesse oblige that has long pervaded Remuera life but also the colourful characters, the dramas, tragedies and occasional scandals that penetrated the suburb's elegant veneer. The result is a compelling account of an area of Auckland's eastern suburbs that are steeped in heritage and an indelible part of the city's rich fabric.
