Historic Photos of Archery in New Zealand
The photos above are an example of a group of between 350-400 historic photographs of Archery in NZ which were purchased by an American gallery from Fairfax Media. These have been offered to ANZ for purchase at a cost of around $4,000.
Archery NZ (ANZ) is currently fundraising through a Givealittle Page to complete this purchase and bring this important record of our sport back to New Zealand. Once we have the photos we will initially load copies of a selection of them onto the ANZ website so that they can be widely accessed and eventually we hope that they can be on display at dedicated Archery venue/s. If we are unable to raise the full amount to purchase and transport them home we will try to purchase a good selection of the collection with the funds raised.
What we are asking from New Zealand Archers is a small contribution to the Givealittle page which can be accessed through this link:
We ask that you distribute this notice to your members (past and present) so that they can add their support to this project. Some of our longer standing members may recognise the photos and be able to add further history to the collection. We would be very pleased to accept any information they may have on the full collection when it is available.
