Thames (NZ): Thames Photos in the 'New Zealand Graphic'

I know I keep saying it...but remember to keep on looking back at places you have previously visited, when hunting for genealogy or history information.

The wonderful Auckland Libraries Heritage photo site, never ceases to amaze.

I will be collecting some of these and posting to the facebook page over the next few days. For now here is the wedding of Dr Aubin, a much loved Thames Dr of the early 1900s. Matron Stewart of Thames Hospital is in the 2nd row from the front, 2nd from the right - dressed in white.
