These are not my pictures. These were probably taken by my granddad, who was a keen and accomplished photographer. His family, my grandmas family and various friends and hangers on would go on summer camping holidays to Waihau on the East Cape, which is still a pretty wild and inaccessible part of the country today, but at least there's a bridge now. Then, it was accessed by fording the Waihau River, often with the help of bullock teams.

Thanks. The people appear to be enjoying themselves, and I'd guess that counts for a lot.

What fantastic images!

These are marvelous! Do I read the dates right in that they were taken in '32-33?

Re: What fantastic images!

1932-33 would be right for these pictures. There are lots more - Mum has two suitcases full of mostly family photographs. I scanned probably about 90 over the break and barely scratche the surface.
