Early photos of Maori life to be on display

2:26 pm on 5 August 2010

Manukau City Library is about to open a rich trove of photos of the region's history, including many photos of Maori life.

Project manager Bruce Ringer says the 2500 photos come from libraries and historical societies around the region.

He told Waatea News there are few such pictures extant, as cameras were not used much around Maori.

They will go up on the library website in mid-August.
