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. A wedding group is shown at All Saints’ Church, adjacent to the Square. This church, designed by Edward de Jersey Clere in the English Gothic style was consecrated in 1914 and became the major city church for the Anglican community. The Evans family do not appear in this photograph but Betty Evans attended the church and her son Tony Evans later sang in the choir.
