By NICOLA MURPHY Take a step back in time by looking at historic west Auck- land photos with Auckland Libraries' historic online database. Access to the database just got easier with the addition of more than 15,000 digital photographs of Auckland. Old photos of well-known landmarks like the Waita- kere Ranges, Lion Rock, the Upper Nihotupu Dam and St Michaels and All Angels Church in Henderson are a part of the collection. The newly digitised images have been sourced from supplements of the Auckland Weekly News published between 1935 and 1944. The Heritage Images Online database features photos which tell of New Zealand's involvement in World War Two among other notable events. Auckland Libraries man- ager Allison Dobbie says the images provide a pictorial depiction of New Zealand and life during that time. Auckland Libraries hold an almost complete run of Auck- land Weekly News pictorial supplements since the publi- cation began in 1898. In the past these images have been difficult to access because of limited index of the material and the fragility of the original paper copies. Images have been taken from newspaper volumes and a digital camera is used to capture an entire page of photographs. This image is then transformed into separate records for each photo with searchable information about each one as well as a tran- scription of its original news- paper caption. It can be accessed through www.aucklandlibraries.govt. nz.
