“Three Christchurch Boys High lads at the Lancaster Park turnstiles on their way to watch a Wednesday afternoon rugby match in 1956.”

Lancaster Park opened on 15 October 1881 and was Christchurch’s  primary sports venue until it closed following the earthquakes in 2010/2011.

Christchurch City Libraries has been running an annual Photo Hunt in conjunction with the city’s Heritage Week since 2008.  The 2016 Photo Hunt is running again from 1 – 31 October. During the month of October we will be posting a series of images from earlier Photo Hunts.
