The Way We Were

Pictorial Memories of Early New Zealand

Southland / Central Otago / Fiorland

Soft-Cover - As-New
Published 1994

Text by Valerie Davies

The Way We Were is a series of books that captures through photographs the essence of everyday life in New Zealand prior to 1960.

The series provides a unique and personal view of our history, as the photos have been unearthed from family albums that have recorded the lives of generations of New Zealanders.

From them we gain a very real sense of the forces, the people, the struggles and delights that have moulded our country.

Southland, Central Otago and Fiordland is a spectacularly beautiful region.

The first Europeans to come to the area were whalers and sealers, and the greatest impetus for development was the finding of gold.

Arrowtown and the surrounding countryside became the scene of the biggest gold-rush in New Zealand, later, crowds of tourists would bring prosperity to the sparsely populated area.

Through photos of faces and places caught in time, The Way We Were charts the rich panorama of the region's heritage.
