The Nelson Photo News



Roving Camera


During the so-called New Year's Eve festivities in Trafalgar Street, some idiot gave a malicious fire alarm which brought a unit of the Nelson Fire Brigade tearing through Trafalgar Street. The engine had to negotiate a sea of broken bottles on the road and hundreds of people on the street before it arrived at the scene of the alarm, at the Hardy Street intersection.


The flag of the U.S.S.R. flies from the stern of the small Russian freighter Vitya Khomenko, the first Soviet vessel to visit Nelson in 25 years. The vessel unloaded a cargo of potash here.


Watching the trolley derby in the comfort of armchairs were these three spectators.
