They first settled in Feilding, moved to farm at Makino and finally, due to George's ill health, settled in Palmerston North where George set up a photography business in Main Street. On retirement he took up land in Hokowhitu and established a commercial orchard. Back row from left: Charlie; Alf; Arthur; George; William; Henry.
