The New Zealand Family from 1840:
A Demographic History
Ian Pool, Arunachalam Dharmalingam, Janet
Sceats
An authoritative demographic history of the New
Zealand family from 1840-2005,. This reference is a
collection of statistics that interprets the changing
role of the family and its members. Using detailed
research spanning 165 years, the authors chart the
move from the large family of the 19th century to
the baby boom. The increase in family diversity, and
the modern trend towards unsustainably small
families. This analysis of society helps trace
changing attitudes and the structure of society by
noting the reasons for and consequences of the
demographic changes.

The Worst Street in London
Fiona Rule
2008
Amid the bustling streets of Spitalfields, East London,
there is a piece of real estate with a bloody history.
This was once Dorset Street; the haunt of thieves,
murderers and prostitute, the sanctuary of persecuted
people, the last resort for those who couldn’t afford
anything else – and the setting for Jack the Ripper’s
murderous spree. So notorious was this street in the
1890s that policemen would only patrol this area in
pairs for their own safety. This book chronicles the
rise and fall of this remarkable street, from its
promising beginnings at the centre of the seventeenth
century silk weaving industry, through its gradual
descent into iniquity, vice and violence; and finally its
demise at the hands of the demolition crew. Meet the
colourful characters who called Dorset Street home” -

Grace Foakes
Biography; homes & haunts of childhood & youth,
working class social life & customs, social conditions
in 20th century Wapping, London.
Holiday Seasons
Christmas, New Year and Easter in Nineteenth-century
New Zealand
Taking readers back in time and across the seas, this
peek inside the lives of New Zealand settlers offers
delightful descriptions of traditional British festivals and
documents their development after being transplanted
into the young colony. Though the seasons were
reversed, the vegetation unfamiliar, and the land
isolated, the early colonial New Zealanders were
devoted to their traditions and kept them up in the face
of not only their physical environment but also the wide
variety of religious cultures represented by both the
colonists and the native islanders. The celebrations
became unique to the island that nurtured them, mixing
traditions of Presbyterians and Catholics with Baptists,
Anglicans and the Maori.

Town' paint a wonderful
picture of past lives and
times.

Toys of Early New Zealand Peggy Armstrong & Denise Jackson In an electronic age, where so much of a child’s time can be spent in front of a television or computer, the playthings of earlier generations evoke a special charm and nostalgia. The children of colonial New Zealand brought toys with them on the long sea voyage from Britain and throughout the 19th century a variety of playthings were both imported from Europe and the USA or made here. This volume takes a loving and knowledgeable look at the toys and pastimes of colonial New Zealand children, Maori and Pakeha.
