Roving Camera


As cute a bunch of puppies as a camera could capture is this basketful of thorough-bred Welsh Corgis, bred by Mrs J. R. Nicholls, of Grant Road. Full of life, they could hardly stay still for long enough to have their picture taken, before romping away to play with little Jackie Nicholls (lower picture).


Uncovered recently by a change in course at the mouth of the Waipaoa River, this groyne, which looks like a jetty, now projects into deep water. For years it was completely covered. It was built in 1946 by the Ministry of Works to straighten the mouth of the river, which before then used to wander for miles round towards Young Nick's Head.



Squatting on the stage steps, against a background of banners, trade-marks, and advertising bally-hoo of the goods he helps to sell, Selwyn Toogood, wearing his hated microphone harness, and clutching in one hand a raw egg in a glass, takes time off to plug the needs and virtues of the Red Cross to a Gisborne audience in the Opera House.
