This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 17 January 1961: "With the winds experienced in the city last night and today many house gardeners shudder at the damage done. On the brighter side, the begonia house at the Esplanade is untroubled by winds or weather. Pictured is Mr. M. Martin doing the usual early morning tidying up around the glasshouse. Mr. Martin, a student of the Palmerston North Boys' High School, working his school holidays, hopes when leaving school to study horticulture and take a degree."
