BERRY BOYS: PORTRAITS OF FIRST WORLD WAR SOLDIERS AND FAMILIES. Michael Fitzgerald and Claire Regnault. Te Papa Press, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, 2014. 200 pp. with 146 ills. (8 col.). 29 x 21 cm. ISBN 9780994104120 In English.
Publisher's description: A surprise discovery in the 1990s unearthed the remarkable photographs of Berry & Co, a Wellington photography studio of the early 20th century. Among the thousands of images are more than a hundred of ordinary World War One servicemen in uniforms, many posing with family. Often taken directly before the men left to fight, they offer a potent snapshot of the New Zealand of the time--and the changing face of the war itself. But who were they? What happened to them in the war? Te Papa wanted to make contact with their descendants and learn more about their lives. In September 2013, TVNZ's Sunday program spread the word, and a heartfelt public response helped reunite many soldiers with their identities. Published to coincide with a new TVNZ documentary, Berry Boys features the full collection of beautifully reproduced portraits, accompanied by the unique stories of the soldiers and their loved ones.
