Distinguished Visitors


A few days before his party was unseated from the Government, the Prime Minister, Mr Nash visited Nelson in the course of his political campaign. This could quite possibly be his last visit to Nelson as Prime Minister, for advancing years may induce him to hand over the leadership of his party at the next election. Here he is seen with harbour board members inspecting the reclamation. From left: Mr S. A. Whitehead, M. P. for Nelson, Mr M. H. McGlashen, chairman of the board, Mr Nash, Mr J. H. Brunt, Mr G. R. McKellar, Mr E. R. Black and Mr S. L. Thawley.


Bearing a letter from the Mayor of Richmond, Surrey, England, Miss Janet Dunbar called upon the Mayor of Richmond, Nelson (Mr H. H. Lowry), as one of three travel writers visiting New Zealand. The other two writers were Messrs Leslie Stone and Harold Champion. They were presented with coloured aerial pictures of Richmond and Miss Dunbar was given a cigarette box in native timbers and paua shell to give to the Richmond Mayor's Surrey counterpart. The group, on the steps of the Richmond council chambers, are from left: Messrs Stone, J. A. Harley, Mrs Lowry, Mr J. H. Wheeler, Nelson Public Relations officer, Miss Dunbar, and Messrs Champion, Lowry, F. Stevenson, new town clerk of Richmond, and Terry Eagan (Tourist Department).
