Check out the following areal photograph. I am stoked, a high resolution and extensive picture of Tryphena and its hills from 1948. I have been searching sporadically for such a photograph, one that shows my land, for a couple of years. A link to similar photographs is provided at the bottom of this post. Turns out, I haven’t been searching properly. I hope now to find a similar picture taken from the other cardinal direction, as it would show the rest of my property.
Many more historic photographs of Great Barrier Island are available from the National Library of New Zealand.
