We may be in challenging times with a pandemic and lockdowns, but it is springtime. There have been some gorgeous days in Ōhinehou and the wider harbour, then those like that remind us that the season is as changeable as Lockdown levels!This photograph from the collection is unattributed, as are many of those featuring people. We do not know who the two young women enjoying a sea of blooms are, but they certainly appear to be relishing the experience. The Museum collection includes more than 20,000 objects, photographs and archival resources; over 10,000 of which have been recorded digitally and are available to view online https://www.teuaka.org.nz/collection If you know anything about the individual items, please let us know in the comments section. Once the proposed new museum, Te Ūaka is built, the collection will be curated and displayed under six main themes - Mana WhenuaColonial CanterburyLyttelton LocalMaritimeAntarcticLyttelton by NatureWe will use these themes to tell the stories unique to Lyttelton/Whakaraupō. You can read more about the themes on our website or in our Case for Support booklet, copies of which are available from the Museum Cabin at 35 London Street on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 2 pm once we reach Level One.
