Can you help us add valuable information to the Livingston Baker Archive?

Come along to a new exhibition, Through the Lens, that features a selection of historical photographs from the collection of Aotea Utanganui – Museum of South Taranaki at Hawera’s LibraryPlus from 6 October, 2011.

District Archivist, Cameron Curd says the community play an important part in the exhibition process by contributing important information to the photographs the museum may not already have. 

“You may know something about the homes or businesses featured in the photographs, helping to add valuable information to the Livingston Baker Archive,” he says. “You may have lived or worked at one of these places or you may have even owned one – we would really appreciate any information you can tell us about these places, as they are so important to our collective memory”.   

This is the third in a series of Through the Lens exhibitions to tour libraries and galleries throughout the district. All photographs in the exhibition focus on the homes or businesses of South Taranaki and are available to purchase by contacting the District Archivist.    

Everyone is welcome to attend the exhibition that opens on Thursday 6 October at the Hawera LibraryPlus, 46 High Street, Hawera.

The exhibition will continue to tour the district’s LibraryPlus centres throughout this year and next.
