Charlie Douglas – explorer, surveyor, geologist and…… cartographer!

I also visited Archives NZ today to inspect the original maps Charlie Douglas drew by hand of South Westland. This beauty is around 3.5 metres long and covers everything from the Whataroa River down to Martins Bay. Absolutely stunning. Some of the typography is examined in detail at right.
