Upper Hutt City Library 2017 Heritage Calendar on sale now!

People have often asked us why we don’t collect some of the amazing photographs in our archives together and make them available as a calendar – well, now we have!

This is the first of what is planned to be an annual Heritage Collections calendar, and the images we’ve chosen for each month aren’t just beautiful in and of themselves, they also tell the story of our community, from Upper Hutt’s earliest days as a pioneer settlement, through its decades as a picturesque recreational hinterland for the capital, to its post-war flourishing as a major suburban industrial centre, and beyond. Given the vast range of photographs in our archives it was always going to be impossible to comprehensively survey every aspect of Upper Hutt’s past over a mere twelve months. However, we hope that the small selection of images we have chosen will be sufficient to pique your interest and inspire you to learn more about the varied lives, transformations and developments that together comprise the history of our city.

Cost: $15 per calendar + $4 postage and packaging (NZ only, maximum three calendars per envelope).

The Heritage Calendars can be ordered online via the Upper Hutt Library website: http://www.upperhuttlibrary.co.nz/heritage-calendar/
