The Selwyn District collection of heritage photos contains some wonderful glimpses of country life as it used to be. An imposing collection of hats lines up at the annual ploughing match in Waddington in 1909.
Oat stacks as art form. A reminder of skilled farm work.
The collection of photographs of the Selwyn district is from the Weekly press and the Canterbury times between the 1860s and the 1920s. They have been produced as a joint project between Selwyn District Council and Christchurch City Libraries. They were photographed from the newspapers by Stephen Wright.
