Note: Brian Little was the grandson of James Little, the originator of the Corriedale sheep breed. Shot with a camera bought in London in 1935, Brian’s films firstly date pre-war, then move forward to troops embarking at Lyttelton. Finally, the films depict country and farm life on the family sheep station Hui Hui in Hawarden, North Canterbury, during the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. Brian’s principle leisure hobbies were boat building, and a love of automobiles. Both interests are reflected in his films.
