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. Most children from the Savage Crescent state housing area, developed between 1937 and 1945, attended West End School at the western end of the suburb. The school opened in 1913 and was the second public school to be built in Palmerston North after College Street School in 1893. The teacher is Mr. I A Charles.
