Group of people at Ruapuke Beach, Waikato, New Zealand

[ca 1914]

Group of people photographed seated on the ground. Groups of flax plants are behind them, and coastal plants in the foreground. Photographed by an unknown photographer in about 1914.

Though the date of "about 1905" is inscribed on the back of the orignal mount, the clothes of the women are the every day wear of 1913 - 1918. I have opted for a pre World War One date (ie the summer of 1914) because two of the women are wearing the very large hats that, generically, belong to the period 1908-1915. On the other hand it may be later. One of the men is wearing a military hat, but then he may be member of the local volunteers.
