- Fearnley, Charles James, 1915-1988
Most of the collection is of images of New Zealand buildings. The most extensive area covered is the Wellington region which includes Wellington City, Lower Hutt, Petone, and the Kapiti coast. Wellington City is extensively covered with photographs taken between 1977 and 1980. Subjects include old and new houses, old and new office and commercial buildings, shops, churches, halls, and street scenes. All are documented as to the date the photograph was taken, the street, the street number, and in many cases the name of the building. Architectural images include details such as cast iron, fretwork and turned ornamentation, murals in commercial buildings and public sculpture. Also included are smaller architectural subjects like telephone boxes.
Other places include Akaroa, Rotorua, Masterton and the Wairarapa. From beyond New Zealand there are sections on Sydney and Noumea.
There are a large number of photographs of Churches taken in Canterbury, Malborough, Nelson, and Wellington. By far the larger number are from Wellington and relate to Fearnley's book on Wellington churches (published in 1977).
