Borpo paper

Just put up my conference paper from the NZHA conference a couple of weeks back. The paper builds on earlier stuff I’ve written (for Staple Magazine and The National Grid) on boring postcards and Gladys Goodall, but it’s better structured and expressed than anything I’ve done on the topic before (I think).

Anyway – it was very well received, and I got a lot of constructive ideas, feedback and leads to other research, etc. So I’m happy.

Here are a couple of boring beauties I had to leave out:

Photographer unknown, ‘Timaru, Canterbury’ (Whitcoulls Ltd)

Photographer unknown, ‘D.B. Mangere Hotel, Mangere, Auckland’ (Logan Print) [Detail]

Photographer unknown, ‘Rotorua International Hotel, Rotorua, N.Z.’ (Souvenir Distributors New Zealand Ltd)
