What a lovely photograph! I’ve been looking through our collection of heritage photos from the Selwyn District and wedding and wedding anniversary photographs featured regularly. Most were splendiferous lineups of hats and suits but I loved this closeup of Mr and Mrs George Foster – their character filled faces – and their modest best.
Interesting historical note that they came to New Zealand on the Edwin Fox.
The collection features photographs of the Selwyn district from the Weekly press and the Canterbury times between the 1860s and the 1920s. They have been produced as a joint project between Selwyn District Council and Christchurch City Libraries. They were photographed from the newspapers by Stephen Wright.
