Murray C. Freer: a photographer’s life


Many of the photographs in the South Auckland Courier during the 1960s and 1970s carry the name of Murray Freer. For almost thirty years Murray Freer chronicled events in Manukau, first from 1958 as a freelance photographer, then as a reporter, and finally as an editor. Murray was also a Manukau City councillor from 1965 to 1968. This is Murray’s own account of his years behind the camera.
