Pavilions, temples & four square walls: Christchurch pump houses and substations

Alternative Title
The architectural heritage of Christchurch. 10
It is easy to overlook the small brick and concrete pump houses and substations that punctuate the streets of older suburbs and bring essential services to our homes. Closer examination, however, reveals that these little structures are important pieces of the city's architectural and social history, meriting as much study as our more prominent heritage buildings. This booklet presents a selection of Christchurch pump houses and substations, including some never built and some that have been demolished. It also looks at the issues and controversy influencing their architecture over the first half of the twentieth century.

Contents:
Drainage and electricity services transform city
Evolution of Pumping Stations
