Historical Note
These glass plates were collected by Canterbury Public Library librarian R.C. Lamb from the then Antigua Boat Shed proprietor W.S. Dini around 1972. The creator of the plates is believed to be Samuel Anstey. In the early 1900s, Samuel Anstey, the Antigua Boat Sheds proprietor advertised in The Press that he had “70 well-built boats to choose from” and a “Photographic dark room for the use of visitors”. The plates record groups such as visiting theatrical companies, several Christchurch buildings, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens and a trip through Nelson, Taupo, Auckland and Napier in 1905.
