Bethley bought me this photo of her distant relatives’ homestead. It was built in the 19th century located at Maungakaramea, 20 minutes drive away from Whangarei- the house is still standing looking very much the same as in the photo. The image was in serious need of restoration work. I patiently removed every small mark as the photo was going to be printed to an 11 x 14 size. Bethely loved the job done on it and has now given me a 45 photo restoration project for an up comming jubliee of the Maungakaramea community. This will take quite a while, it took me over a day to scan the photos in!
