More Info →Evans Family Collection: Mr Evans and sons at Massey Agricultural College farm

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 Evans and sons, John and Michael, are examining a sheep at one of the Massey Agricultural College farms with the assistance of a staff member. The College was founded in 1928 and offered degrees in agricultural science and short courses on farm technology and management. By the 1940s it was noted for its major contribution to the development of New Zealand’s sheep and dairy industries and the photograph was probably included to promote careers in the farming sector.
