Day 26 Mail. The red blob in the middle is a Royal Mail Box. I took this snap on 4 Jan 2012. What is so fantastic when I am looking back over past photos is when the metadata saved with the photo includes the date and map location. What is bad is when I forget to reset the date on my camera. Fortunately phone I leave the setting on with my phone. #GenealogyPhoto #GenealogyPhotoaday #genealogy #familyhistory

Day 22 Advertisement.
I found this one for a Grand Xmas And New Years Carnival organized by an A Kitto. It might be my grandfather. I don't know of any other A Kitto's around at the time but I still need to verify it fully. He was on a lot of committees over his adult lifetime so it's highly possible.

Day 19 Water
My local lake is a nice spot to walk. The sun goes down very quickly in Queensland so sometimes I get caught out as have to suffer scenes like this.

Day 17 Sailor/Uniform.
When the day comes that you need a picture of a sailor in uniform it confirms what you always knew - that collecting pictures off cousins of distant relatives with no blood connection is a super good idea.

Day 14 Vacation.
A pic from our vacation in Marseille, France back in 2013. The Notre-Dame de la Garde, a Catholic basilica and the most visited site in Marseille.

Day 12 Shopping
Sometimes we would go on the train to Wellington and meet Nana at Kirkcaldie & Stains for Lunch. Commonly referred to as Kirks by locals. It was a shopping institution along with James Smiths. Here are a couple of old advertisements from Paperspast.

Day 7 Summer. Circa 1940s. Summer in NewZealand. You still might need cardigan.

Day 6 Stamps. The New Zealand Health stamp series has been issued every year since 1929. Part of the money from the sale of Health stamps goes towards the running of Health camps. The health-camp movement was founded on a belief that taking poor urban children to the countryside, exposing them to fresh air and sunshine, and feeding them well, would improve their overall health by making them stronger and less susceptible to diseases. #GenealogyPhoto #GenealogyPhotoaday #genealogy #familyhistory

Just about every photo of my Nana has her wearing flowers. #genealogy #familyhistory #GenealogyPhoto #sisters
