More Info →George and Septuagesima Shailer

A portrait of George (c1846-1918) and Septuagesima Shailer, thought to have been taken in February 1874 before departure to New Zealand, from Brentford, Middlesex, England. They travelled aboard the "Ocean Mail", which sailed from Gravesend, England. George was a well known local photographer in Palmerston North, taking many studio and informal photographs in the Manawatu region. See also: Saga in Sepia by V. Smith.

Septuagesima was one of approximately 523 Palmerston North women who signed the Suffrage petition, as was her daughter Clara. The petition was submitted to Parliament in 1893.
