Order our special commemorative book.
To commemorate 150 years of The Southland Times we are publishing a 176-page full-colour book.
Author and Southland Times senior writer Michael Fallow describes this new book as "a scamper through 15 decades to show at least a little of how The Southland Times has drawn from, and contributed to, the lives of its readers and the times in which they lived".
The book seeks to show how "attitudes of the day, and the personalities of the Times' own personnel, were reflected in the coverage of stories large and small. It features journalistic successes, failures and eccentricities," he says.
"It tells how the paper's owners and management, particularly three generations of the Gilmour family, steered a steady corporate course through good times and bad; how advertisers at times showed breathtaking cheek, and how a paper boy became a lifelong friend of Field Marshal Montgomery."
Priced at $25 for Southland Times subscribers, $30 for non subscribers, we are now taking orders. This is a limited print run so to avoid disappointment we recommend that you pre-order your copy.
