Hiskens Airviews customer index

Production date
Rodney Bart Hiskens (1933-1975) was renowned for his aerial view photography and rural views in particular, taken between 1952 and 1956. Farm owners usually purchased a copy and framed photos often hung in rural homes. These are a unique record of rural life showing everything from vegetable plots to washing on the line and the junk heap under the macrocarpa.
The index notes negative numbers, names and addresses of property owners for aerial views of the King Country, Taranaki, Te Puke and Whakatane.
