First Hundred Years

A Historical Record
of Petone's Progress
from 1840 to 1940
The Editor gratefully acknowledges his indebtedness to Mr. Hapi Love, Mr. A. P. Godber, the Parliamentary Library, the Turnbull Library, and the Publishers of "Adventure in New Zealand and "Early Wellington," also Mr. H. Firth (Town Clerk) and his staff, Mr. J. Johnson, and a host of informants.
The photography in this publication is principally the work of Mr. C. L. Jackson.
The publication of this record of the First Hundred Years of Petone's History has been delayed in order to incorporate, within its pages, the celebration of two important events—the Jubilee of the Borough and the Centennial of the Wellington Province in which Petone played an important part.
Published for the Petone Borough Council by Messrs. L. T. Watkins Ltd., at their registered Printing Office, 176–186 Cuba Street, Wellington, N.Z., 1940.
