Please feel empowered to send any comments along to me. There are no doubt many transcription errors. If there is sufficient sensible  feedback, I may even make a responses page.

I'm still looking to add more information on the history of the Lawrence Crew, Jack Stokes and "Te Wharekura". There are still quite a few out there who can fill me in. I'll add a page when I get something.

Just send email to me at

Have a happy day!

For those technically minded. This site was constructed using Microsoft Expression Web (Beta 1). The photos were scanned on an HP Scanjet 4300C and processed using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0. It was originally just an exercise in learning to use CSS. But there you go - things have a habit of getting out of hand.

I checked it on several browsers:IE7, IE6, Firefox, Safari. Hopefully the printing is working now too. If you are using a recent browser that doesn't display or print the pages correctly, please drop me a line.
