A visual history of Christchurch chimneys-domestic, commercial, and industrial-this book describes the chimneys' design origins, functions, and modifications. Documenting the typical styles of successive periods, from late Victorian through Art Deco to the latest versions on modern homes, this record demonstrates the diverse heritage of European chimneys replicated in colonial New Zealand. Following up on the devastation caused by two earthquakes-in September 2010 and the following February-the book provides insight into those historical events, as well as photos of architectural structures that were later completely destroyed.
