This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 31 January 1961: "Miss Mary Sanderson, the petite blonde flying trapeze artist, reclines in her "railway carriage" home. She is lying on an attractive kangaroo skin rug made from kangaroos shot by the company. Clearly visible are the Maori pois, her "lucky tiki" around her neck and the "fisherman's good luck" doll from Australia."
