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 is shown loading cases of butter at the Palmerston North railway yards. The Awahuri Dairy Company may have been selected to illustrate the possibilities of jobs in the farming sector or because New Zealand butter was familiar to the British public. The company was first listed in 1897 and ceased trading in 1960 when it amalgamated with the Rongotea Co-operative Dairy Company. Jack, in fact, worked for the Manawatu Cooperative Society and as a delivery driver for the City Council. He also worked for Sheetmetal Productions (later Metalcraft Industries) in Church St.
