Photograph [Jeff Shanks]About this object
Photograph; a coloured photograph of piper Jeff Shanks in Highland dress. Jeff was a valued member of the Mataura Kilties Pipe Band and his service to the Band was honoured with a life membership.
The Mataura Kilties Pipe Band formed in 1905 and celebrated its centennial in 2005. Dwindling membership resulted in a merger with the Gore Pipe Band in 2014 to form the Hokonui Celtic Pipe Band. To help preserve its history the Mataura Kilties donated their photographs and archives to us. This photograph is part of that record.
This photograph was taken at the 2014 New Zealand Pipe Band National Championships which were held in Tauranga.Maker
