The Coming Year: A look back at Thames
Paperback | English
What caused four tides in one day at Thames?
Who did the police think was hiding in a bach at Tapu?
Why was a township of 2000 planned for the Western Firth?
What was a monkey doing in Karaka Road?
A town founded on gold mining, Thames also has a different, more recent history now dug up from old newspapers.This dip into the decades gives us a snapshot in time of people and events in 1940-1970. Whimsical, trivial, comical, startling and curious – this is what people, the real gold of Thames and districts, once read about themselves.
