TIFF Rayner’s rich pictorial history of Myrtleford will not only be preserved but live on in the annual calendar he first started in 2008.

“Mr Myrtleford” lost his battle with leukaemia just a few months ago but already had next year’s edition at the printers.

Along with more than 5000 images gathered during his days as a news reporter, cameraman and historian the calendar will now be handed over to the Myrtleford Historical Society.

President John Taylor said they wanted to continue Mr Rayner’s legacy.

“Tiff started this nine years ago and it has become a rich legacy for the town,” he said.
