New Zealand was a very different place 25 years ago - yet so much of the country still looks the same as it did in the 1990s. 

The changing face of Wellington has been highlighted in a series of photos by husband and wife Derek Smith and Maclean Barker.

Now, we'd love you to dig out your own moments of Kiwi history and share them with us. 

The family albums, the landscape shots, the city scapes - they all contain a window into how New Zealand used to be, as well your memories of times gone by. A picture is worth a thousand words, so help us tell the story of our country's past.

Share your photos with us - tell us a bit about where it was taken, who's in it, the memories you associate with it. What kind of place was it then? What does it look like now?
