Photograph [Hilary Quertier]About this object
A black and white studio portrait of Hilary Quertier.
Hilary Quertier was well-known and regarded for his inventions. He came from an interesting family - his father Alfred was apparently one of the first Quakers to come out to New Zealand, and as he had come from Guernsey in the Channel Islands he named his Mataura farm 'Guernsey Park'. One sibling of Hilary's, Albert Ernest, worked a gold-dredging barge in the Waimumu Stream.
