The Nelson Photo News



Roving Camera


Members of the Nelson Search and Rescue organisation returning from the source of the Riwaka River during their search for a man who went missing in the area in January. The man, a patient at Ngawhatu Hospital, was not found. Third from left is Allan wiechern, in diving gear, who explored the deep hole at the head of the river. Some idea of the terrain in which the search was conducted can be gained from the pic at right.


For a time it appeared that hot meat meals would be available at the Nelson abattoir and the Fire Brigade sent out a general alarm. But the fire was contained in this small building used as an office.
