My taonga

My taonga is 36 and a half centimetres long and made in the USA. It is a telescope and the brand is Argus. What is so special about it is that it is my Granddads. He died and gave it to my dad. My dad then gave it to me. My granddad died about 24 years ago. The telescope is about 40 years old. My Granddad died in 1990. No wonder I didn’t see him. My Granddad used it for archery. I used it to look at anything. The colour of the telescope is black and silver.


  1. Joe, you are so lucky to have such an amazing taonga. Look after it we'll.

    This is a wonderful post about a very, very special treasure. I love what you have written and hearing about the special old telescope was very exciting. I wonder how your Grandad used it for srchery. Is there anything else that it could be used for?
