Five Generations

Painstaking Work

Now In New York

In Cyprus Now


From Mrs F. Bignall, Waipaoa, we have this five-generation photo of members of her family. From left, they are Mrs Bignell (great-great-grandmother), Mrs D. Raggett (great-grandmother), Mr A. Raggett, Linton (grandfather), Mr K. Raggett, Masterton (father), and his son, Dean.


Mrs S. Price, a member of the Social Group for the Disabled, has made a marvellous job of fancy work on this afternoon tea cloth. It has taken her many hours because, you see, although it is perfect in every stitch, she can only work with one hand. Makes you wonder just what is the matter with all these people who moan about having nothing to do.


This Maori costume was designed by Mrs Hine Hale, now of Thames, but formerly of Tikitiki. The costume was made for Mrs Kay Thoreson, nee Kelly, who is now living in New York City. She is seen here wearing the costume


And the cloak.


From Mrs Noema Reen, nee Te Runa, comes this picture of herself and Sean. Noema, who recently celebrated her 21st birthday, left Gisborne on a working holiday in 1968. She met and married her serviceman husband while away, and they are now living in Cyprus. They hope to return to New-Zealand in 1974 and visit Noema's parents, who still live in Gisborne.
