When the Palmerston North Bowling Club formed in 1889 it rented a private Green in Lombard Street, at which this photograph must be taken. In 1901, land in Taonui Street was purchased, adjoining the Lombard Street Green, which was later purchased. Front Row: Sitting 4th from left is W T Wood, with hands clasped around knee; Back Row: standing 3rd from right is J A Nash, with black bowler hat; Middle Row: sitting 3rd from left is Kenneth Wilson, with the white hat and white beard. The Feilding Star described the event: The Palmerston North Bowling Club opened their green for the coming season yesterday afternoon there being a large attendance, including Messrs W. A. t. Bailey, H. L. Sherwill, W. G. Haybittle and E Giesen from Feilding. The President, Mr K Wilson, welcomed the gentlemen from Feilding and Mr Bailey expressed the thanks of his club for their admittance as honorary members to the Palmerston Club and for the hearty reception with which his party had met.
