A photograph capturing the staff at the Auckland Star in the 1960s has been discovered and restored.
Tony Lawson, 85, received the photograph from his friend Don Armitage, whose father Jack is pictured in the photograph.
“The photo came to me in a very poor condition,” he said.
“However, my youngest daughter's close friend who is a graphic artist has done a few hours work on this and has come up with an amazing improvement.”
Lawson started working for the Auckland Star in 1964.
“In those days it was hot metal, as they called it, a line of type writers going like the clappers,” he said.
“The noise was something, it’s a wonder we’re all not stone bloody deaf. It was 1976 they were all gearing up to go into the computers.”
He estimates the photograph was taken in the 1960s.
