GOLD - GOLD MINING IN NZ on Early NZ Postcards

Although there is a wealth of published information on this topic as New Zealand has a long and varied history of gold and gold mining (continuing even today) - very few postcards actually exist on this topic. You will find most of them of images of the towns and locations that rapidly grew up around these discoveries - very few of the actual operations or individuals searching for it.

That said - It is an interesting topic with heaps of books to read - alot of places here in New Zealand to visit and see and a past that built New Zealand. Below I have shown just a few of those early postcards.
