Tasman District Council Archives Collection
This basket contains historic photographs, letters and other items from the Tasman District Council archives.
The Tasman District Council was formed in 1989 and covers the area previously covered by the Richmond Borough Council, Waimea County Council, Golden Bay County Council and Motueka County Council. The majority of items in this collection are originally from the Richmond Borough and Waimea County Council. Many of the items were donated by former Council members.
Of special interest is the Richmond History Project Photographs. These photographs were taken in the 1980's and show a range of houses, shops and other buildings in Richmond during that period. Many of these buildings have since been demolished.
