Museum photos saved

Tuakau and Districts Museum volunteers are currently busy with the conservation of the many hundreds photos the Museum has accumulated over the years.
Thanks to a Helping Hands grant from Te Papa precious old photos can now be scanned for display and then filed in acid free plastic covers and stored safely for future generations while still be easily accessible for research, says the Museum’s Sandra Brassell.
The copies will be on display on boards around the building so the visitors can see and read about the history of the town more easily.
The Museum, in the old post office in Liverpool Street, is open every Sunday afternoon and Thursday mornings.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
