Roving Camera


An ancient hearse, which was unearthed at Tokomaru Bay by workmen demolishing an old mill, prepares for transportation down the coast to Gisborne where it has been presented to the Museum. (Picture by Frank Wynne-Jones).


Aberdeen Road fountain?...no, just the city council clearing their water mains and fire hydrants from mud after a mid-winter storm had dirtied the water supply.


A very long funeral procession followed the hearse carrying the body of the late Sister E. W. T. Pritchard, M.B.E., who died at her home in Gisborne recently. 85 years of age, Sister Pritchard was one of the pioneers of district nursing in Gisborne, serving unstintingly in this area since 1911. She was one of the first group of 50 Army Service Nurses who went overseas in 1915, returning to Gisborne in 1919.
