More Info →Evans Family Collection: Picnic at West End School

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. Women seated are Betty Evans (front right) and Mrs Nesbit. School picnics and sports days were held at the Esplanade and adjoining sports grounds. West End School was opened in 1913 and was at the western end of the area which became the Savage Crescent state house suburb built from 1937 to 1945. Like most of the children in the suburb the Evans children attended West End School, a short walk from home.
