Rear view of the 8-roomed family home, ‘corner of Boundary Road and Kairanga Road’ (present-day Tremaine Avenue and Botanical Road), on the 71-acre farm then occupying the north-western corner of Palmerston North. William Chapman and his family, previously of Hope Farm, in the hills above Petone, moved here in April 1901, setting up a combined sheep and dairy farming business. They later moved to No 77, Kairanga Road; by 1918 the house shown here had disappeared. Identifiable in the picture are: William Chapman (1861-1941 – on the right), his wife Jane (1854-1944 – wearing apron), mother Jessie (in chair – 1822-1903), younger son Will (leftmost of the two boys – 1895-1918) and second daughter Aggie (standing left on the veranda – 1890-1967).
