Henry Winkelmann is probably the greatest marine photographer this country has known, and here for the first time a broad selection of his classic yachting images has been put together in a single volume. They range from the mid 1880s through the heydey of mullet boat racing before the First World War and end with images taken just before his retirement in the mid 1920s. Many famous yachts are captured here ? Ariki, Rainbow, Viking, Moana, Iorangi, and others from the Logan and Bailey yards ? and many of the images have never been seen in print before. All photographs have been selected from the Auckland Museum?s remarkable Winkelmann Marine Collection.
