This was to mark the first Christmas after the end of World War One. The presents were packed at the offices of the Manawatu Racing Club, opposite the Barraud and Abrahams building, to be distributed by a number of Father Christmases with the help of local citizens. These men are standing on the south side of Rangitikei Street, opposite the premises of the Manawatu Racing Club. Mr Henry Collinson of Collinson and Son Ltd, is third from left with hat on.
