More Info →Evans Family Collection: Evans Family, 5 Mansford Place

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. Jack and Betty Evans and sons seated on the lawn of 5 Mansford Place, Palmerston North. Though Savage Crescent houses were designed in a variety of architectural styles, windows as shown here were a standard feature and mass produced in enormous numbers. These probably came from the local joinery factory of H.E Townshend, a firm which secured contracts to build a large number of the houses in the suburb.
