Reid album 3

Reid album 3
[Circa 1902 to 1911]
Easter, Theophilus, 1832-1913; Zachariah, Joseph, 1867-1965

Photographs chiefly taken around Wellington Harbour and Queen Charlotte Sound, mostly related to yachting. Taken by unidentified photographers, except one taken by Theophilus Easter, and three taken by Zak [Joseph Zachariah].

Many of the scenes are linked with the Thorndon Dinghy Club, with named yachts which include the 'Rona' and the 'Iorangi', both owned by Alexander Horsburgh Turnbull. Some of the names are illegible, most being written in pencil which has become faint.

There is one photograph of Turnbull on his yacht 'Rona' (p 153/1), and two postcards signed by him (p 162 (verso)). One reads " Opening of season Thorndon Dinghy Club. Best wishes to you [each?]. A.H.T."; and the other reads "Opening of the Thorndon Dinghy Club season. Taken from Norton's Shed. Note extension of breast work. Kia ora. A.H.T." (p 162/1, 162/4)

There are four loose, unidentified photographs inserted in an envelope at the front of the album.

On the last page there are three photographs taken by Zak [i.e. Joseph Zachariah] in 1911. The first one shows the start of the first class yacht race for the P.N.Y.C. (Port Nicholson Yacht Club) Regatta in 1911, and the other two show the yacht 'Muritai', taken on the same day. Other yachts pictured include 'Ruru' and 'Miru'.
