Happy holidays from all of us at Ngā Taonga
On behalf of everyone here at Nga Taonga, we’d like to wish you a happy holiday season and some well-deserved time off. For this year’s festive video, we delved into the recently preserved films of Tauranga amateur filmmaker Norman Blackie (1899-1993). The Blackie Collection is rich in records of community events around Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty in the mid-Twentieth Century. If you weren’t already planning to do so, we hope it inspires you to get out there these holidays and see what’s happening locally.
Other films in the Blackie Collection are available to watch online here. Thank you to Tauranga City Libraries for allowing us to share their deposited items.
