While the main objective of this book was to mark the 75th anniversary of the Glern Oroua School the resulting publication was a well-compiled local history of the area, in the south-west lower corner of the Manawatu region. In his foreword to the book the Jubilee Committee chairman John McTavish said that while a lot had happened over the past 75 years, the greatest influence had been the school. For many years the children attending either walked to school or "travelled on horseback," later coming in buses and cars. Memories of the district went back to the days when the dairy factory, post office and store, church and blacksmith shop were flourishing amenities."Now, like most country districts, we have only the school and a hall. These two we must hold to strongly to maintain our identity," he wrote. During the late 1870s an extensive programme of draining low lying areas in the district was undertaken and in the 1880s a large area of land known as Oroua Downs was sold to a number of landowners and by the end of the 1880s that land had become "highly productive" and it was on these beginnings that the future development and progress of the district was based. Of the 18 chapters about half are allocated to the history and activities of the school, with"community" aspects covered in chapters relating to the dairy company, farming life, local services, recreational and other activities, roads and transport and the people -- mentioning prominant local identities. This wide selection leaves little unrecorded from Glen Oroua's first 75 years. First edition of 1979, printed by GPH Print, 152 pages, illustrated throughout with b/w photos, several maps/plans. Blue mock leather hard covers with gilt spine titles are VG++, small and neat former owner ink name top corner FFEP, text block otherwise excellent. Size: 22cm By 16cm. N° de ref. de la librería
