We have this photo in our collection and we would like to know who these people are. In particular the gentleman standing on the left wearing a traditional Māori cloak (korowai). We have had a few suggestions but we are not sure and we would like to hear your thoughts.
Here is some background… This photograph was among the possessions of a serviceman who returned from World War Two. It has been mass produced by a photographic studio based in Petone (no longer in operation). The returned soldier was very involved in rugby and his community and he ran a business in Petone.
The ink stamp on the back reads: Photocraft Studio Jackson St Petone Tel 61-607.
Please contact us if you know, or you think you know! Thanks.
