1948 Areal Photograph of Tryphena – Great Barrier Island

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.
