More to Picture about Wairarapa
The Wairarapa Archive staff have been working hard over the New Year, adding many photographs to the Picture Wairarapa collection. There are now 3239 images available. Archivist Gareth Winter reports many images of Queen Elizabeth Park have been added to the collection.
"We were very aware than many schools like to base a heritage study on the changes in the park. Our book, published in late 2008, A Very Publick Reserve gives good information about the park's history, but we wanted to add more pictures for students to access. There are now over 220 photographs and plans on the site, so students should be able to finish their researching for images on the one site."
