History Found At The Dump - Jason Blair

From Afternoons, 1:30 pm on 3 March 2016

An historic piece of alpine history has turned up at a most unusual place. The very first log book of the West Coast Alpine Club has been found, dumped at the Greymouth tip. It dates back to the founding meeting of the club on 7 May 1936. And includes writings, photos and hand-drawn maps, documenting the clubs history into the 1950's. Jason Blair is a photographer, and the president of the West Coast Alpine Club.
