Progressive Books, 1930s

Auckland's Progressive Books opened as a cooperative left-wing venture in 1936. It was known as 'Basham's Bomb Shop' because Jack and Doris Basham (shown in the photo) were its initiators. The shop attracted support from unionists, socialists, modernist intellectuals and academics. It claimed to stock 'a wide range of books on questions of the day, at the lowest possible price'.
