More Info →Evans Family Collection: Mr Evans in a Palmerston North pharmacy

A photographic series prepared by the Prime Minister’s Department in 1947 to attract British migrants. The Evans family of 5 Mansford Place, Palmerston North were selected to show the living conditions of a typical New Zealand family. Jack Evans collects a prescription at Leary’s Pharmacy in the Square. The assistant has been identified as Campbell Aitchison. In 1947 medicine had become largely free on prescription from a range of pharmaceuticals determined by the Government. The series of photographs gave considerable emphasis to health services.
