Wellington Map Lens Cloth
Keep your spectacles, smartphone screens and even telescope lenses clean and smudge free with this Wellington Map lens cloth.
This lens cloth features a historical cartographic map of Wellington, New Zealand in 1915. Designed to care for coated lenses and delicate devices, and most importantly removes smudges and fingerprints easily.
Wellington became New Zealand’s capital in only 1865. Wellington wasn’t the first capital however, Russel and Auckland were before us! The decision to change the capital occurred when fears arose that the South Island would break off, from the rest of New Zealand, and become a sovereign state. A panel of Australian-based commissioners later designated Wellington the seat of government due to its favorable geography, sheltered harbor and central location.
This lens cloth is a practical way to remember a trip to New Zealand’s capital city. It also makes a great gift for a Wellingtonian ex pat.
