FEW-SELECTED-TOWNS GREETING AND MULTI POSTCARDS


FEW-SELECTED-TOWNS GREETING AND MULTI POSTCARDS - Simple template blog

This series of articles of more than 30 plus location "TOWN GREETING AND MULTI-VIEW POSTCARDS" have been created around multi-view postcards I have selected from my data base of reference images ( just a few that were produced early in the photography postcard era of 1900's) which when one thinks about it was our early "digital" photo-album scrap-booking issues produced into postcard form for the public.

These magnificently produced postcards (In my opinion never since been produced in design quality or creativity since in postcards produced later) were done by local photographers ( That's why one can find them of selected locations showing historically prominent buildings or views of those times.)

These photographers took superb picture of individual sights, views of historical buildings or special views within their location (and often used other local photographers images - so copyrights where obviously not an issue and just a verbal agreement seemed to be satisfactory (as people or movable objects - which could not be replicated - appeared in the final composed image postcard - and you can find that image produced as a full postcard created to another photographer and publisher)

This makes these multi-view image postcards historically important as a past actual record of the time and of our past and of their pioneering spirit. Once the superb images (photographs had been assembled and selected - and in most cases because they had/where already produced as individual image postcards and where the best available) used in the scrapbook photo-album (page) set-out along with the scrap-booking surrounds to form the final picture/image design which was then photographed (probably back in their studio) to then be produced as an image postcard (reproduced in small runs - probably 100-500 issues) to be then sold to the local public to use. A simple form of advertising their local attractions to the rest of the world from them being sent by locals to family and friends around the world (And in a few cases to be saved by local collectors into their own postcard collections.)

These may be the only images of the past today recorded for us of the actual events and times which we can now look back on with pleasure - SO are historical important and should be shared.

With these images/postcards I have researched/added a bit of important information on them and added links for you to research further. ENJOY

Gisborne, New Zealand
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gisborne (Maori: Turanga-nui-a-Kiwa, "The place where Kiwa - of the Takitimu waka - stood") is a city in northeastern New Zealand and the largest settlement in the Gisborne Region. It has a population of 34,300[2]. The district council has its headquarters in the city. Gisborne is named after an early Colonial Secretary William Gisborne.

History

The first settlers in Gisborne arrived in the first millenium aboard two canoes which had set sail from Hawaiki. An intermarriage pact was agreed upon by the leaders of the canoes and so Turanganui a Kiwa or Gisborne was born. The newly arrived Maori found excellent conditions in which to grow the kumara or sweet potato and as the people prospered they moved further inland.

European settlement by the Pakeha took its time. They were put off by the inherent dangers involved as when the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840, the chiefs of the East coast would not recognise it nor put their names on it.
The first european was a Mr John Williams Harris who bravely set up the first whaling station in the area. More whalers followed and they in turn were pursued by the missionaries. Father Baty and Rev William Colenso were the first to come and such was the importance of their endeavour that they tramped through the Te Urewera in competition for the saving of souls.
The introduction of Christianity to the Maori was a complicated business. Firstly the Catholics and the Protestants were in competition with each other. The fervent new beliefs of the converted turned to hatred when land disputes arose as the Maori believed the missionaries themselves were as hungry for land as the rest of the settlers. The Hau Hau movement was born in 1862 in reaction to the land losses and betrayal from the Crown. They based their beliefs largely on the Old Testament and were marked out by their dancing around nui poles while calling for the new settlers to leave their country.
So strongly did they believe in their cause and religion that they threw themselves upon their enemies shouting their distinctive hauhau battle cry using only raised right arm to protect themselves as they believed that their religion and faith was enough to protect them. The government was too strong for the uprising and by 1866 the opposition was brought to a close with the capture of their leader Te Ua Haumene and other surviving rebels like Te Kooti who were then transported to the Chatham Islands. The story does not end there. Te Kooti was a legendary figure in his own right. A prophecy had foretold that should he live longer than his elder brother dark times would fall upon the land and its people. Te Kooti's brother died of an illness at an early age and by the mid 19th century war was the order of the day.
Te Kooti was not content to wait upon a pardon and led an escape from the island aboard the captured Rifleman supply ship with some 200 other prisoners.
In 1868 he led his army to wreck revenge at Matawhero and so 33 Europeans and 37 Maori came their ends. Te Kooti was both feared and supported. What with the prophecy at his birth and his vision of the island and a reputation for healing and prophecy, Te Kooti established the Ringatu Church.

We have also opened a facebook page done professionally - so hope you can use that as well. I will try and upskill my facebook useage which I have not done previously.
