Rotorua a Tourists Linguistic Nightmare

Rotorua Place Names for Tourists of 1906.

This masterpiece by an unknown author caught my eye when I was browsing through Papers Past, it seems not much has changed for the unsuspecting tourist! There is much to be learned from our history and this database is worth a look, as, in times past there was little, if anything, that could not be published in the newspapers.
