Old Lost Photos part 2

On the back of the photo, it says, "The Rock (Maungarahoe),  near Dargaville." Maungaraho Rock today.


These two may be of the same event. Both were taken by "J. Batchelor, Film Specialist, Whangarei". If that's John Batchelor, then the Auckland City Library photographers database lists him as operating around the years 1925-1932. Which would fit, because the speaker (detail below) sure looks like Gordon Coates.

 What was happening, I don't know.


  1. Excellent stuff Lisa love these images. Mangaraho is an awesome landmark in the Northern Wairoa. I'm going there again sometime to get more photos when I can.

  2. Cheers, Liz. Thanks for the shout-out on your blog, too!
