Encounter Overland Scrapbook
Icon Encounter Overland ScrapbookThis scrapbook was put together by Aroha Uea. It is not in strict date-order but includes photos dating from the late 1960s to 2000 taken at various events including trip departures, birthday parties, Christmas parties, staff farewells, travel shows, brochure launches and a couple of weddings. Not all events include a description of the particular occasion. If you can provide information on any of the photos please email Lance Thomas at and I will try to find a way to include it with the scrapbook.
