On cap­i­tal

The New Zealand Herald - - EDITORIAL & LETTERS -

In the ar­ti­cle by Martin John­ston about the John Lo­gan Camp­bell book on Satur­day’s A10, he says New Zealand’s cap­i­tal was first at “Koro­rareka/Russell”. That is not cor­rect. The first cap­i­tal was at Oki­ato, which was named Russell. Koro­rareka was named Russell later, when the cap­i­tal had al­ready moved to Auck­land. Bob Pear­son, Unsworth Heights
