MTG Hawke's Bay, 1 Tennyson St, Napier


All Ages

An incomplete portrait of an anonymous boy, the silhouettes of a family filed into a handmade folder, letters from a grieving mother, a huia feather slipped into an envelope, a ribbon sewn onto a page open mysteries, stimulate stories and offer insight to recording, collecting and keeping in the past.

This exhibition reveals unique and rare diaries, letters, photographs, illustrations and ephemera from the Hawke’s Bay regional archive. It explores what these treasures meant to Hawke’s Bay people in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

Like a view to the heart, the exhibition invites us to imagine what it was that people of the past desired to remember.

Supported by Hawke’s Bay Regional Council.

Museum entry prices apply.

21 September 2013 – 21 April 2014
