DIGITAL STORIES of Thames & Coromandel Peninsula

With the ice in the air today and talk of snow possible on the ranges, I am reminded of the times when snow has been sighted in the district. Many of you will have seen snow on Mt Te Aroha and on other ranges around the district over the years.

There is a wonderful digital story "Snow on the Tokatea" by A Rowe that recalls the day in 1939, that snow fell in the Coromandel ranges.

This is just one of many digital stories that were completed as part of the 'Coromandel Community Digital Storytelling Project.'  There are several that are specific to Thames, but I'm sure you will enjoy watching them all!

Recordings for Thames include:
"Osborne's in Thames" by J Rowe
"Tararu and Shortland Cemeteries" by M Nankivell
"Why Thames?" by D Legge
