Tuesday 21st May, 6pm

In partnership with Southern Heritage Trust, Dunedin Public Libraries is pleased to host this excellent series of inspirational talks, exploring visions of Dunedin’s past and present and, perhaps more importantly, our visions for its future.

May's talk is presented by David Murray, Hocken Collections Archivist

Take a trip through time to explore Dunedin's built environment through the lens of the photographer, historian, and author Hardwicke Knight (1911-2008). 

With an eye for architecture, Knight captured scenes ranging from familiar landmarks through to streetscapes now almost completely changed. 

David will guide you through a series of images in the vivid colour of Kodachrome film. He will share historical information about some of the buildings shown, and talk about the man behind the camera and his enthusiasm for exploring Dunedin's heritage.

The talk will be preceded by the SOUTHERN HERITAGE TRUST’s AGM and will be followed by light refreshments
