West Coast Times
Browse by date within this newspaper
The West Coast Times started in May 1865, only two months after the Provincial Government in Canterbury had proclaimed the goldfield on the West Coast. The paper prospered on the back of the gold boom and rival newspapers were established in opposition. In 1917 the West Coast Times was absorbed into the Hokitika Guardian and Star, which ceased publication in 1988.
