These are glass plate negatives from the Waiuku Museum collection.  These photographs were found in two small glass plate negative boxes.  It is likely that they were taken by someone who lived in Waiuku.   Unfortunately not much else is known.  We do not know who the people in the photos are.  If you recognise anyone please let us know.  Our contact details can be found here https://waiukumuseum.wordpress.com/about/
