Cover- Issue-136

Inside issue 136 (February - March 2019)
 



In his excellent leading feature, author David Relph asks if readers have ever wondered how English birds were introduced to New Zealand? It struck me that I have never pondered that particular question and I found the article, describing how birds were gathered in nets from the streets of London in the 1860s and transported to New Zealand, quite astonishing. Whatever, I wonder, did those unsuspecting feathered immigrants make of their new surroundings and the native bird population upon their arrival in Dunedin?
 
Other key features in Issue 136 include the history of our iconic Buzzy Bee, written by Christopher Moor, and Claire Duncans excellent profile of Richard John Seddon, New Zealands longest serving Prime Minister. Both contributions are accompaniedby superb illustrations gathered from a variety of sources.
 
Grace Cheung brought back memories of my teenage years. Late night shopping in Aucklands Karangahape Road to chose aButterickpatterns (Voguewas always a bit pricey) and fabric at Barker andPollock to sew an outfit for the Saturday night dancing. Mary Quant and Twiggy fashion designs were all the rage then and eagerly copied.) If there was any time and cash left over, the evening concluded with bargain hunting around Rendells and George Courts; I have vague memories of a uniformed elevator attendant at the latter. Of course nothing ever beat The Farmers basement for bargains if you caught the free bus to the bottom end of town!
