‘1920s: The Draper’s Picnic. Why the American flag is on the table is not known. The band have left their instruments under the trees and the baby is alone in its pram while everyone concentrates on the photographer who must be up a tree.’ – from “A Picture Book of Old Hawke’s Bay” by Kay Mooney and Margaret Henderson, 1984, page 75
