For a history of the region, people and businesses of Canterbury, New Zealand, you can't go past the 'Cyclopedia of New Zealand volume 3'. Published in 1903, this volume is one in a set of six volumes which covers the whole of New Zealand. Each contains biographies of many of the locals, and not just the more well-known ones, but also a history of the region, and the businesses that made it what it is.
From professional to tradesmen in the Canterbury region, they are listed here. 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 government, societies, groups and institutions, 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.
Regions covered include the suburbs of Christchurch, the suburbs of Canterbury, Northern suburbs, and Banks' Peninsula.
Thousands of photographs of buildings, scenes and people are included throughout the whole publication, which just adds to the importance of this work.
