The exhibition will remain in place for 1 or 2 months in a case installed in the Edmiston Gallery.The 'Out of the Box' exhibition series will showcase some of the paper objects (e.g. books, archives, manuscripts original documents and photographs) that are normally kept in boxes in storage and are only seen when needed for research enquiries or for temporary exhibitions.

In keeping with the theme this month - Merchant Navy Day (commemorated on 3rd September to honour those who served during WW2), the first exhibition will celebrate the140th Anniversary of the New Zealand Shipping Company.


The New Zealand Shipping Company was first registered in Christchurch on 6th January 1873. On the 12th September 1873 Hindostan the first ship owned by the New Zealand Shipping Company left London and arrived in Auckland on the 28th December 1873. In 1874 Hindostan was renamed Waitara.. Future themes for exhibitions will include: Auckland Harbour Board anniversaries, maritime firsts in NZ, 19th century immigration ship arrivals, shipping company anniversaries, shipwrecks, WW1 commemorations and yachting events.

How does that work for you? Serious Q

Not the OP here, but I'm curious...
My computer is a tool. It's on a desk. I look stuff up on the web, enter the info somewhere else. I do homework, I write articles, I run a small email biz. I print shipping labels and then have to stick them on boxes. The room the computer sits in is an office. The office chair is an office chair, built like any other office chair, intended to keep you from getting drowzy and keep you alert. Comfortable in its way, but not "relaxed" comfort. The room has shelves full of my text books, the 3-ring binders I stash my homework and graded tests in

The real story on shipping

I sell online for a living. Per pound on larger items Fedex Ground is unquestionably cheaper than any other service. I use Fedex online, just give them a credit card and get to shipping. Online users save 10% automatically. The form asks for dimensions of your box, be careful, the larger the box the more it costs. I cheat on these dimensions and have not found they check unless the package is huge. You can play with the dimensions then click "courtesy rate quote" and see how much trimming is helping. They do weigh the packages so hedging there does not help. Packages can be dropped off at Fedex Kinkos, any Fedex staffed facility, or can be picked up for $4 per package(not very frugal)
