Thames (NZ): Latest photo of The Treasury and Archives

Seems a long time since I've updated on the Archive in Queen Street...all the activity has been inside as the team at the Treasury (The Coromandel Heritage Trust) prepare for the opening of the building in March. Today, Saturday 8 February the site is packed with blocks, blocks and more blocks! The fence is underway.

The Archive will be officially opened at 2.00pm on Saturday 15th March by Dr Jock Phillips who was formerly Chief Historian within the Department of Internal Affairs and Ministry of Culture and Heritage, then Concept Leader in History at Te Papa. Dr Phillips is now the General Editor of Te Ara, the Encyclopaedia of New Zealand.
