From the Karitane nurses looking after little cherubs to the salt-sprayed dock hands, step back into the era of working in 1900s Otago. Oyster shuckers, tunnelers, milk bottle washers and more feature in this collection of vintage images from the Otago Daily Times, The Evening Star and Otago Witness archives.

Each image tells a story of day-to-day life, from typesetting the paper by hand to building the Star Fountain, and installing new-fangled traffic lights to the milk girls from the war. Trusted to tell these local stories for over 160 years, the Otago Daily Times is opening its vault of images — shot by staff photographers — in this 1000 piece vintage puzzle.

These limited edition puzzles are proudly designed and made in New Zealand. They also feature the original captions on the back of the box, so you can uncover these hidden gems of history in more detail. Be in quick only 250 copies available!
