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. Michael Evans at West End School being seen by the visiting school doctor, Dr Talbot. Dr Lonie was the medical officer for the Manawatu District at the time. By the late 1940s all New Zealand children had a medical examination on entering school, were seen by a nurse at Standards 2 and 6 and could be referred to a medical officer. The Polio epidemic of 1947 underlined the need for preventive health care for children.
