Indices to the Feaver Collection of plate glass negatives held in Puke Ariki.
Samuel, eldest son of John and Kate Feaver. In 1912, Samuel moved into Opunake to manage the chemist shop. Business had expanded to include an optician and photographic business and a veterinary service. Samuel introduced a cataloguing system for the growing collection of plate glass negatives.
In 1974, the Feaver family offered the Taranaki Museum John and Samuel's collection of glass-plate negatives. With the collection came four original indices 1917 - 44. The first volume was missing and has been reconstructed by Taranaki Museum staff. A second cataloguing system also runs through the collection and again, staff have constructed an index. The collection itself contains 10,075 plate glass negatives, all of which have been proofed, indexed and are now readily available to researchers.
