Whakarewarewa by William Price
William Archer Price (1866-1946) was a postcard photographer working in the North Island of New Zealand in the early 20th century.

Price began publishing postcards around 1906, initially in Wanganui, and then in Auckland. He lived and worked in Northcote, Auckland from 1909-1910, and from 1920 until about 1930 on Ponsonby Road in Auckland.

Whakarewarewa, a geothermal area in Rotorua in the North Island, has been a popular tourist destination since the late 19th century. Price photographed the area in 1908, taking pictures of the village and geysers.

The images are part of the Price, William Archer, d 1948:Collection of post card negatives (PAColl-3057) group in the Alexander Turnbull Library, National Library of New Zealand. You can see more images from this group on the Timeframes website.

These images were added to The Commons on Flickr in November 2008.
