Calendar launch


The Queenstown & District Historical Society has launched its first calendar to raise funds.

It features black and white pictures from vintage postcards showing snapshots and street scenes from Central Otago and Queens­town in days gone by. “It’s an ideal Christmas present and comes with a ready-to-post envelope,” says society president Brian Bayley.

“We’re now hoping to produce a calendar on an annual basis.” At $10, they’re on sale at Lakes District Museum and a variety of retail outlets around the Wakatipu.
