I had been scanning mums photos when I came across these lovely black and white photos of her guided trip across the glacier.
I am not quite sure of the date of her trip but I am guessing it would have been sometime around 1950-1955.
The national library records online turned up these tourism posters. The sprig of rata is from the tree that blooms in our temperate forest that surround the glacier.
