This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 24 February 1958, page 6: "This entry to the floral procession was the work of the combined retail stores in the city and well deserved its placing of first in its section. The float, which was made in two pieces, showed a perfectly outlined swan drawing a bevy of beautiful girls who were surrounded by white and blue blossoms. Completely decorated in artificial blossoms, this float was the result of much painstaking work by those who designed and built it."
