News from the Ian Matheson City Archives

Recently the Ian Matheson City Archives received a fantastic donation of photographs from Morrison’s Pharmacy in Awapuni. Many of the photographs chart the development and growth of the pharmacy itself, but there are also images of the shopping centre and local area. This a welcome addition as a business archive and it adds to our limited collection of historical images of our suburbs.

Records of suburbs is a significant gap in our collections, so if you have any records and photographs that show life in the outer city over the years the Heritage team love to talk with you. Phone them at 06 351 4100 or send them an email.
