More Info →Evans Family Collection: Visit by Doctor to the Evans home, 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. Betty Evans greets a doctor making a home visit, a service necessary before car ownership was common. From 1941 a fee of 7s 6d was paid by the government for treatment by G.P.s though doctors were able to charge an additional fee.
