Cessna skiplane on Tasman Glacier, NZ, mid 1960s

A Cessna 180C of the Mount Cook Air Service on Tasman Glacier - for details of the aircraft, of course,  The Aircraft of Air NZ and Affiliates since 1940 by Paul Sheehan is your book.  This was one of the many pictures taken by NZ's "postcard queen", Gladys M. Goodall, who from 1952 went around the country taking photos for picture postcard publishers. She celebrated her 100th birthday in June 2008.  Most of her collection is now in the Alexander Turnbull Library, part of the National Library.
