Author(s): Alexander Turnbull Librar
This magnificent book contains a selection of more than 200 images of New Zealand from the air. Taken from the White's Aviation collection at the Alexander Turnbull Library, these images of towns, cities, landforms and events were taken from the 1930s to the 1970s, and show a landscape still familiar in some cases and changed beyond recognition in others. These stunning black and white images represent an important phase in New Zealand's aviation, aerial photography and publishing industries, and are fascinating to look at. They combine historical interest with that natural curiosity of seeing recognisable landforms and places from a completely different perspective. The selection of images is accompanied by an introduction to the collection, historical background on aviation pioneer Leo White and his company and an exclusive interview with key White's employee Clyde Stewart.
