Shamrock Motors workshop manager Alister Stewart admires
the Otago Daily Times "Arrowtown Today" image, reprinted at
1300mm x 800mm by Arrowtown Gallery director Simon Beadle
(pictured). Photo by Gerard O'Brien.
The photograph, shot by ODT
Stephen Jaquiery on October 7, along with the details of 762
residents - and four dogs - will be buried in the Arrowtown 150
time capsule on Monday afternoon.
After viewing the "Arrowtown Today" image in the ODT
on October 8, Mr Beadle contacted the newspaper seeking
permission to sell the photograph in the Arrowtown Gallery
and hopefully benefit the Lakes District Museum.
"I just thought it was such a fantastic initiative and the
photo itself is just amazing.
"I think the ODT photographer did a great job. The clarity of
the photo is amazing; it's a piece of history.
"If somebody comes in over the next few weeks and they can
identify themselves in the photo ... I'll give them 10% off.
If they want to get the thing framed, I'll give 10% of the
price of the framing to the Lakes District Museum.
"The [museum] does a hell of a lot for the community and
doesn't get much back."
Prices for the image - unframed - ranged from $24, to $340
for the large print pictured.
