The Past & The Curious

Get a close-up look at items that are normally locked away, through entertaining show-and-tell talks with Tauranga City Library Heritage Specialists.

On the 1st Wednesday of the month from 1:15-2pm in Ngā Wāhi Rangahau/Research Collections on the first floor of Tauranga Library.

Free, no booking necessary.

Our next talk will be on Wednesday, 3 February 2021:

Outward letter book of the Tauranga Survey Office, 1866-1868

With the smell of smoke and gunpowder still lingering in the air, the land we live on today was measured and apportioned by Tauranga’s first surveyors. It’s their outbound letters that are the subject of this “The Past and the Curious” talk by Heritage Specialist Harley Couper. They shed light on Tauranga Moana both then and now. They have the potential to reveal something of the past, but there is also power here, to help us imagine the future.
