More Info →Evans Family Collection: Evans Family, 5 Mansford Place

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 and Betty Evans and sons seated on the lawn of 5 Mansford Place, Palmerston North. Though Savage Crescent houses were designed in a variety of architectural styles, windows as shown here were a standard feature and mass produced in enormous numbers. These probably came from the local joinery factory of H.E Townshend, a firm which secured contracts to build a large number of the houses in the suburb.From left Michael(7 years) Betty Evans, Tony (5 years), Wayne (3 years), Jack Evans and John (10 years). Only the elder boys John and Michael appear in the rest of the series.
