The Christchurch City Libraries Flickr account is a treasure trove of local images. We have photos of library events and displays, things we see around the city (buildings coming down, and going up), but we also have photos that have been donated for digitising from members of staff and the public, often as part of our annual Photo Hunt competition.
And, my word, there are some great outfits captured in those photos. Here is just a selection –
Harewood Airport 1954
Staff from No. 4 Hanger. Name of aircraft “PEHO” (D.C 3). This plane was built 20 March 1945 as a freighter for the RNZAF for use as a paratrooper. The aircraft went to the National Airways Corporation 29 September 1947 and went back to the Air Force 20 February 1967.
A team of people from Christchurch City Libraries are attending the Christchurch Writer’s Festival and will be blogging and taking photos and interviewing the authors and others. The photos we will post to our Flickr set.
I am interested in anyone else who may be blogging, or adding photos to Flickr and if we can connect it all via a tag at technorati or Flickr. I would suggest the tag CWF08 – but you might also want to use a more human friendly one like Christchurch Writers Festival
I have had a brief look around to see who may already have blogged the festival already, and will make suggestions to them that they do this tagging.
