The Early Hotels Of Old Wanganui (Paperback)

This books tells the history of the 28 hotels opened by hopeful hoteliers, and some of the scandals a...nd dramas that occurred within them. This books captures the nostalgia of the past but is also a useful reference book as of all the hotels that once thrived in Wanganui, only three still serve their original function and have run continuously throughout the years. The Red Lion, The Commercial and the Castlecliff hotels.
