Registration Types:

Auckland Council Archives holds the historic records of the legacy councils of the Auckland region, including thousands of aerial photographs dating back to 1940. This talk will include a brief history and explanation of aerial photography in New Zealand, before focussing on Archives’ collections. We’ll look at the qualities that make these photographs so valuable and show how they have been used by local authorities for many different purposes over the years. We will also talk about how these photographs can be accessed and show how they might be of interest to local and family historians.

About the speaker
Owen Gordon has been a member of Council’s Archives team since 2018. Prior to this, he held several positions within Waitākere and Auckland Libraries, most recently as a librarian with the Research and Information Team in the Auckland Research Centre.
