It’s a little early yet but Dawn Stewart of Hastings, is getting in now on the sun tan treatment.


It is with pleasure that we present to the people of Hawke’s Bay the first issue of “Photo News”.

We are sure that the introduction of this magazine will be welcomed by the people of our province and that our readers will look forward to seeing a wide variety of local activities pictured on these pages.

It is the intention of the publishers to cover as fully as possible all activities and events of interest within our Province and, with this in mind, all organisations are invited to advise us of any of their activities which we may be able to feature in “Photo News”. Although most pictures published will be taken by our cameraman and local professional photographers, “Photo News” will always give consideration to the publication of pictures sent in by our readers.

Sends This Message

My Club will view with interest the commencement of the Hawke’s Bay “ Photo News” Magazine, and wish the publishers every success in their venture. Similar magazines produced elsewhere have been of very great interest and value, not only to the people in those areas, but to New Zealand as a whole, and I am sure that a follow-on would be popular in Hawke’s Bay, and at the same time show to intending visitors an indication of the pleasures ahead of them in Napier and the Hawke’s Bay district.

President, Napier Thirty Thousand Club (signed) T.W. Hercock

I am pleased to have the opportunity of supplying a brief foreword to this publication. I should like to compliment those who have been responsible for the compilation and production of this informative and valuable booklet. I hope it will have a wide circulation, for I am sure that it cannot but help to awaken a keen interest in our district and all it has to offer.

To those of us who call Hastings our home, it will act as an additional incentive towards taking an even greater pride in our City and the surrounding district and will encourage us all to show that standard of good citizenship which is the surest guarantee for its future progress, and prosperity.

Taradale Citizens were the first away and had finished their Queen Carnival before most centres had started theirs. The tried and proven method of Queen Carnivals as a means of raising funds in a worthy cause, was used by them to good effect.

The initiative of the organisers, coupled with the generosity of the people in the Taradale-Meeanee District, resulted in the target being reached.

The Comedy theme was extensively used and provided excellent entertainment.


At right Bill Leadbetter seems to be making hard work of it in the Mens-Girls game of Basketball played at Taradale Park during the Carnival. Below Bill Leadbetter introducing Walter McKinnley to the Mayoress of Taradale, Mrs. Yeo. The rest of the team don’t seem to appreciate the solemness of the occasion.

Referee Hector McLean completely impartial as long as the men were winning.

High jinks on the side line


If we can have mixed basketball we can have mixed football – or so it seems, for in support of their Queen the girls played the boys at their own game. There were many cries of “What do we do next?” but the girls won, with a little help from the ref.

The girls display their emblem.

The half-back a credit to any team.

One way to make sure that the ref. sees your try.

The finale of the Carnival took place in the Taradale Hall to a “packed house” and was very well performed. The “Coronation” was carried out with full pageantry, fanfares and all. The evening was a fitting climax to the effort and time that the citizens of Taradale put into their Centennial Celebrations.

Roads And Bridges

Two miles north of Waipawa on the State Highway is the (above) notorious “S” bend, known as “Corkscrew Gully”.
Work is being pushed ahead and the bend will soon be non-existant.

Picture on right shows the alignment of the new stretch of road. Motorists who regularly use this highway will welcome the change.

Just south of Waipawa, on the State Highway this bridge is being built for the convenience of motorists.
As can be seen on left and below it is a major project and when finished will be a great asset.

Bush Kiwi

While conducting burning-off operations in the Tutira area, this kiwi ran out of the bush. Holding the kiwi are Mr. Ken Francis (below) and Mr. J. G. Groome (right). It is now being well looked after at the Acclimatisation Society’s game farm at Greenmeadows.

WHAT IS IT? This fish was caught off Napier at 80 fathoms by the Trawler “Pania” which was skipper’d by Mr. Don Ross of Napier. Fishermen spoken to were unable to identify it. Perhaps you can!

Hawke’s Bay audiences, who heard the young Scot singer Niven Miller, were lavish in their praise of his fine voice. A pleasant surprise awaiting Niven as he left his hotel in Hastings to give his evening performance on the Saturday night, was this guard of honour provided by the Hastings Pipe Band, who piped him to the theatre.

Each year on World Communion Day the youth of the National Council of Churches holds a dawn parade. The Hawke’s Bay branch of the Council held theirs on Te Mata Peak, Havelock North. This dawn parade is only part of the activities of this organisation of combined churches that are held throughout the year. Picture below, taken during the service, shows the peacefulness of the setting.

Inclement weather forced people to shelter under a tree.

The men who took the service, from left: Mr. John Currie, Methodist layman, lead the service; the Rev. H. C. Matthews, Chairman of the Council, Hastings branch; and Capt. V. Robertson, gave the address.

Girls from Woodford House, Havelock North, attended the service.

Not all the youth of today sleep in on Sunday mornings.

Recently the Maraenui Golf Course, Napier, was the scene of a Golf Tournament, the like of which has not been seen here before, and will probably be a long time before it is seen again. Four champions played to a huge gallery and when they played in Napier, it was the first time that these four had played together in N.Z.

Below. The players from left to right are: Gary Player, a South African who is the U.S.A Open Champion; David Thomas, a Welshman who was runner-up to Peter Thomson in the British Open and is at present the Dutch Open Champion; Peter Thomson, the British Open Champion; and Harold Hemming, the South African Open Champion.

Just After contact

Here is a series of shots which “Photo News” is sure will be of interest to golfers everywhere. They were taken during the “Golf Clinic” (to non-golfers: a demonstration with every type of club used). Gary Player shows clearly that his hands were in front of the ball when the club contacted.

Lesser golfers may think that the champions don’t need mental telepathy.

Well away.

SOCIAL NEWS. “Photo News” will publish a photo of your wedding, engagement, coming-of-age, etc., if we have the photographs and the details. Give the information to your photographer and he will supply us with a photo, or ring 3697 Napier, or 4274 Hastings, make an appointment, and a “Photo News” photographer will attend the function.

Address correspondence to Box 470, Napier, giving a phone number where possible and “Photo News” will arrange for a photographer anywhere in Hawke’s Bay.

The pride of Mr. Doug Stewart of Taradale, is this 25-ft. long and 8ft. 7in. beam launch. Doug tells us that it took two years of sweat to build it, but was well worth the effort. He also claims that he can clip across to Tangoio in 40 minutes flat. On right: Doug at the helm.

If you are a radio fan and listen to Selwyn Toogood’s “Lever Hit Parade” you will have heard, in between advertisements for Vim and Lifebuoy, etc., of the “Purple People Eater” contest, and if you aren’t a “Hit Parader” the Purple People Eater was “just the mostest” hit tune and the contest was for listeners to send in their impression of the “Purple People Eater”.

A lot of people must listen to Selwyn’s Hit Parade, for the contest drew 2600 entries from all parts of the country. By the courtesy of Sandy Triggs, of Lintas Proprietary Ltd., here is a selection of the entries received by them.

The weird and wonderful designs of this mythical creature may be an indication of what the Americans (or Russians) will find on the moon when they eventually arrive there.

Page 25

For those who don’t know, a purple people eater is one-eyed, one-horned, it can fly and plays rock-n-roll music through the horn in his head. When asked “What’s your line?” he tells us, “eating purple people, and it sure is fine.” If you happen to see one – “GIVE IT UP”.

“Photo News” will be a representative Hawke’s Bay magazine in the true sense of the word, giving as wide a coverage as possible. Until the magazine becomes widely known this will be difficult, as most of the news will be originating from Hastings and Napier and the immediate surrounding district. This we hope will be for the first few issues only. It will also be unavoidable that in some issues a certain district will have greater coverage than the rest, due to special events taking place in that district, as for example in this issue Taradale is well featured. We do not wish “Photo News” to become known as a “Hastings Magazine” or a “Napier Magazine” and, knowing the friendly rivalry which exists between the two cities, we will be as impartial as possible.

Eric Wood

Mrs. Patricia Davidson.

A scene from the play with Marie Wesley as Rosalie, Marguerite Taylor as Rachel, Ian Robinson as Finlay, and Eric Wood as Peter. There has been much favourable comment on the acting of Eric Wood.

An outstanding feature of the play “Brother Ostrich”, put on in Hastings recently by the Hastings Group Theatre, was the fact that this play was written by Mrs. Patricia Davidson, of Hastings. For a N.Z. author to get a play produced is rare enough, but to have it published is almost impossible. The Hastings Group Theatre took a risk in presenting this play, but it was justified. On the third and final night they played to a “full house” and comments were that it should have been on for a longer period. “Brother Ostrich” will most certainly be appearing again.

Haywood, Taranaki, and D. Murphy of Canterbury.

The Hawke’s Bay Boxing Association organised the NZ Championship this year and did a great job of it, the secretary receiving many compliments from other associations in N.Z. for the way in which it was run. The last occasion on which the Championship was held in Hastings was in 1933, so the organisers didn’t have much practice. Over 70 boxers competed and some excellent bouts were fought before packed houses at the Municipal Theatre, Hastings.

Heavy-weight Finalists, H. Bristowe, of Hastings, runner-up, and G. Simms of Tauranga, H/W Champ.

McKenna and McNally, the best of friends, were the two boys who put up one of the best fights in the tournament.

The Hawke’s Bay team, while they had no outstanding wins at the Championships, put up some good fights, and H. Bristowe came very near winning the heavyweight title, being beaten by G. Simms of Tauranga.

Put on a show to raise funds for the Kindergarten, and “Photo News” with apologies to the Mothers, uses its own captions, with the following results.

Hey, Sailor, get in the groove.

YA! Don’t care if you do go home.

Please don’t go. We haven’t finished yet.

Oh dear, how much longer do I have to put up with it?

Boys of Hereworth School at Havelock North recently entertained parents and friends with an excellent portrayal of a play written by Dr. Vernon Griffiths, Professor of Music at the Canterbury University. It’s not to be wondered at that they did a good job of it, as it concerned the dreams of a boy who had been made to stay behind after school to do extra work, and in the dream he wreaks vengeance on his form master in particular and all masters in general.

Acting the part of Pirates and Indians is no trouble to boys.

Great activity back stage.

One of the earlier functions of the Hawke’s Bay Centennial Celebrations, this Mannequin Parade, put on in support of the Nurses’ Queen, was a great success and “played” to a capacity house. Even though the girls were amateurs at the job, these nurses did justice to the ensembles which they modelled. No further comment is necessary as can be seen.

Put on by the Orphans Club, Hastings, for the benefit of the ladies, this “Fashion Parade” provided the audience with many a laugh.

The crosses pictured above represent the number that were killed on farms during 1957. This is an appalling number and to help combat this, the Young Farmers Club recently held a “Farm Safety Day” at the Tomoana Showgrounds, Hastings. Members of the club gave demonstrations on how, and how not to use farm equipment. Farmers and others who attended would all agree that there is a real need for this sort of demonstration.

President Cliff addressing the Rotarians

A RED LETTER DAY for the Napier branch of the International Rotary organisation was when it acted as host club for all the East Coast Rotary Clubs, and welcomed the World President, Mr. Clifford A. Randall, at an official function held at the Cabaret Cabana. This was the first time that a world president had been to Napier and from the point of view of East Coast Rotarians, was the most important event that has taken place for years.

President Cliff welcomed on arrival by the Napier President, Chief Rotarian Henderson.

Much in demand during the evening.

An appreciative audience.

Enjoys a joke.

Some of you have seen these photographs before, passed suitable comments, and then gone away and completely forgotten them. That is dangerous for traffic will soon be heavy, and “Photo News” hopes that you will remember these pictures and be just that much more careful when driving.
