Wellington’s Roaring Twenties – New Industries and Major Change in Te Aro

During the first four decades of the 1900s, Te Aro was seen as a ‘disease ridden’ slum, with 10,000 residents crammed into small dwellings. In the 1920s, the motor car and planning rules began to transform the area.

Dr Richard Norman, formerly with the School of Business and Government at Victoria University of Wellington will use a new model of Te Aro from the 1920s and photographs to show stages of change to now when Te Aro has more than 15000 residents, mostly in high rise apartments.

This event is free, but koha is welcome for maintenance of St Peter’s church, opened in 1879.

No booking required.

Location: St Peter’s Church, corner of Ghuznee and Willis Streets, 211 Willis Street. Church services are live streamed via Facebook.

Duration: 45 minutes

Cost: Free / Koha
