A Taste of Our Past

The Tribune (NZ) - - SQUARE CIRCULAR -

This year the Palmer­ston North Her­itage Trust cal­en­dar is show­cas­ing the role of food in the ev­ery­day lives of Palmer­sto­ni­ans, from pro­duc­tion, to dis­tri­bu­tion, to con­sump­tion. The cover illustration of af­ter­noon tea on the lawn of Cac­cia Birch is a won­der­ful ex­am­ple of the va­ri­ety of images that can be found within. The Her­itage Trust was set up in 1997 un­der the aus­pices of the Palmer­ston North City Coun­cil, with the main ob­ject of ‘en­cour­ag­ing pub­lic aware­ness of the need to de­velop, main­tain and pre­serve archival ma­te­rial and other records of his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance con­nected with or re­lat­ing to the City of Palmer­ston North and its sur­round­ing re­gion'. As one of the means of do­ing this their an­nual cal­en­dar utilises our lo­cal pho­to­graphic ar­chives. All 13 pho­to­graphs are sourced from the City Li­brary's dig­i­tal li­brary, Pataka Ipu­rangi, which can be found at http://dig­i­tal­li­brary.pncc.org.nz. Cal­en­dars can be pur­chased from the 2nd Floor of the Cen­tral Li­brary for $10.
