Product Information

Alf Rendell was born in Whakatane on 2 November 1917. His father Robert John Rendell was a photographer, but business was poor as the effects of World War I were felt. The family moved to Tauranga where Robert eventually bought a photography business. In January 1939 Alf took over the business before leaving town to serve in World War II. On his return he built up the business and paid friends to take him up in their aircraft where he captured stunning shots of the local area. Rendell's Tauranga - Historic Tauranga From Above showcases Alf's many years of photography in the Tauranga area.
