Event details

Come and hear local author Stephen Lasham talk about his book Onehunga’s Changing Foreshore: A Pictorial History of Modifications to Onehunga’s Waterfront Since the 1840s.

The book provides a history of changes to the coastline surrounding Onehunga, being one of the most heavily human modified coastlines in New Zealand.

The history is based on numerous references to Papers Past from where the bulk of research has come, providing links to news articles and images throughout the book.

Stephen will give a presentation and answer questions about his book.

This event will be followed by a themed book club focusing on the history of Onehunga people, places and first achievements.

Presented by: Auckland Council
