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. In this photograph nurses from the Palmerston North Hospital, arrive for a gala day. When a new building opened in 1942 the hospital had 300 beds and a nursing staff of 165. Radiology and new forms of anaesthetics were introduced. The Social Security Act of 1938 introduced free hospital treatment and outpatient service at any public hospital.
