This popular coffee table book includes over 100 historic photos. The narrative chronicles the development of this inner city suburb of Hamilton from 1867, when it was newly surveyed farm land.

The book documents many historical events in the history of Frankton - from the 1948 tornado, to the Empire Hotel fire; and features classic advertisements from 1917 of businesses in Frankton advertising their wares.

It also has 'then' and 'now' photos and profiles local legends - the people who made Frankton a great place.
