About The Look of Carterton: the First 150 Years, 1857-2007:
The Three Mile Bush straddled the road between Greytown and Masterton, settled in 1854. In 1856 the Wellington Provincial Council decided to establish a new settlement on the road through the area, soon to be renamed Carterton. As Gareth Winter writes: “The genesis of the township of Carterton lay partly in the fertile mind of the man it commemorates, Charles Rooking Carter.” The Look of Carterton tells of the town’s and district’s beginnings and progress over the last 150 years. The informative text marks the milestones along the decades from the early sawmilling era to today’s bustling service town, but the story is principally told through a collection of photographs that instantly capture the look and ethos of each period.
