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. Massey Agricultural 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. The building illustrated was constructed as the main Science building, in 1931.
