Sea Edge: A history of Auckland's Waitematā

From Nine To Noon, 10:07 am on 24 June 2019

Sir Bob Harvey's book Sea Edge is the culmination of years of research into the history and photo archives of Auckland's majestic Waitematā  Harbour.

Best known as a Westie for his time as Waitakere's mayor, Sir Bob was actually born in Herne Bay and spent much of his early life on the waterfront where his father was a fisherman.

He's drawn on his lifetime's connection to the harbour and his experience in the city's governance to help investigate Auckland's history, its present and issues for its future.
