The presents were packed at the offices of the Manawatu Racing Club, opposite Barraud and Abrahams building, to be distributed by a number of Father Christmases with the help of local citizens. This was to mark the first Christmas after the end of World War One. This photograph shows some of the Father Christmases on the south side of Rangitikei Street.
