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 and Ruby Morgan (nee Bailey) making tea at West End Cub and Scout troop Gala Day. Betty’s son Tony a keen member of the Cubs, recalls hanging about at the kitchen door for spare cakes and sandwiches. The West End Scout troop established in 1913 is the longest surviving troop in Palmerston North. The Cub pack was formed in 1938. The year of the photograph was notable for the visit to Palmerston North of the Chief Guide, Lady Baden-Powell.
