The Otago images collection began in the mid 1850's' with the Otago Witness, New Zealand’s first newspaper to publish photos, was continued with the Evening Star until late 1979, and still remains today with the Otago Daily Times.

From the vast historical and ever growing photo archive of Allied Press, publisher of the Otago Daily Times, this collection is gradually being digitized and can now be viewed here.

Otago images launched in December 2006 with over 1,000 images spanning the last century. More images are being added on a daily basis bringing you a truly unique pictorial history of Otago.
