Time travel

On Saturday visitors to the museum were able to travel through time.

Well, perhaps not actual time travel.

But with the aid of our friends at the Amazing Travelling Photo Booth we offered all visitors during Petone Winter Carnival the chance to be photographed in front of a large picture of Jackson Street from the 1920s.

There were some amazing outfits,

For some people carnival is a time to get cosy with the people  you love,

while other hardy souls brave the Mitre 10 MEGA Polar Plunge for a wintery harbour swim.
