Diamond Harbour Camera Club
From Godley Head to Little Port Cooper, stories abound of communities, pioneers and inventions that have shaped the historic harbour of Whakaraupō Lyttelton. For this exhibition, members of Diamond Harbour Camera Club have spent the last year rediscovering views from past photographers of places of historic interest within the harbour and its surrounds, seeking out locations, and where possible matching previous viewpoints. Their contemporary photographs are displayed alongside prints of the historic originals sourced from the collections including Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum, Canterbury Museum, local historians, residents and the Diamond Harbour Historical Association.
