Social historian Bee Dawson turns her eye to the multi-generational story of the Plimmer family – starting with ‘the father of Wellington’, John Plimmer, whose statue at the bottom of Plimmer Steps on Lambton Quay will be familiar to residents and visitors alike. From stories of Victorian and Edwardian life, Dawson’s well-crafted history of the Plimmers branches out to later generations, and delivers us to a modern farming family and an impressive legacy in the central North Island.
