Winkelmann: Images of Early New Zealand

Winkelmann: Images of Early New Zealand

1988 New Zealand Book of the Year Award for Design and Production.

Henry Winkelmann’s prize-winning photography took him on yacht cruises around New Zealand; on the 1903 Pacific Parliamentary tour, and solar eclipse expeditions to Flint Island, (1908), Port Davey, Tasmania (1910) and Vavau (1911). In 1881, he and Harold Hudson were stranded for eight months near the equator, after claiming guano covered Jarvis Island for Thomas Henderson of the Henderson and McFarlane Shipping Company. Henry worked for the BNZ around New Zealand; in Levuka, Fiji, and in Sydney. He played and taught the zither, farmed on Great Barrier Island; was an agent on Queen Street Wharf; secretary of the Coastal Steamship Company, and he invested in property around the country. He died in 1931.
