Did you grow up in Halswell in the 1980s? Perhaps you were one of the children that Chris Parsons read to during story time at Halswell Library and were captured by the Star photographer in May 1981? Let us know if you were, or know who any of the children are. You can contribute comments through the comment section directly on any of the images in Canterbury Stories.

Explore life in the 1980s through the 1980s images we have in the collection and maybe you will find someone that you know. Contact the library if you have images that you would like to contribute to the collection that will provide a wider story of what life in Christchurch was like.
