Card Cover, vg clean copy, Illustrated with colour and b&w photographs, maps, drawings and sketches, Light cover surface wear, cover leading corner and spine tips are rubbed and rolled slightly. More Than Just A Little Island: A History of Matakohe-Limestone Island. This is the story of a small island of only 93 acres of almost solid limestone in the upper reaches of the Whangarei Harbour. Little of its history has been recorded until now. On its summit are the earthworks of a Maori pa. Well-defined Maori garden drainage lines run down from the ridge almost to the shoreline. Its only noticeable features were a derelict concrete house, the shattered remains of an old cement works - fortunately with some of its brick kilns still standing - and other bits and pieces scattered around. Until recently there were very few trees. Just a little island of no consequence. Matakohe-LLimestone Island played a far greater part in our industrial history than had ever been considered before. The first Portland cement made in the Southern Hemisphere was at Whangarei using limestone from the island. Weight 0.54 g Size 270mm by 210mm. Bookseller Inventory # 000270
