This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 30 December 1958: "The large conical tents clustered together at one end of the large camping area accommodate eight boys, but yesterday the lads discovered far more than eight boys could be packed in when there was a sing-song in progress. The youths are those attending the Boys' Brigade annual summer camp at Foxton Beach."
