The Nelson Photo News



Roving Camera


Five R.N.Z.N.V.R. harbour defence launches visited Nelson during exercises in the Nelson and Marlborough Sounds areas. Below, the Naval Relations Officer in Nelson, Lieutenant-Commander A. K. Griffith, with harbour board and city council officials, makes a call.


Nelson is now directly linked with Christ-church by a Viewmaster service inaugurated by South Pacific Airlines of New Zealand. The aircraft, a modified DC3, called at Nelson on its inaugural flight. Large windows, seen in the top photo, give a panoramic view. On this flight passengers included many journalists in the official party, which is seen in the bottom picture.
