Cyclopedias are encyclopedias and considered as reference works containing articles on various topics dealing with the enhancement of knowledge. The term cyclopedia tends to be used by more popular publications with a particular specialty or locality in mind.
Published in 1897, this large volume of over 1500 pages covers the Wellington area. It contains thousands of biographies of professional and tradespeople in the Wellington region. Entries range in length from a paragraph or two, to several pages. Information on suburbs and their leading citizens are also covered. You will also find information on the private railways, charities, education system, ecclesiastical, social and musical scenes. The newspapers, legal, medical, banking insurance and those from the commercial scene (including shopkeepers, grocers, laundrys and more) are all included, along with those associated with them.
Thousands of photographs of buildings, scenes and people are included throughout the whole of the volume, which just add to the importance of this work.
