Newspaper Article 1937 – Triplets Return


Coronation Babies back In Hawke’s Bay


The Anderson triplets returned to their home at Kahuranaki on Saturday night. The triplets, who were born on Coronation Day and were appropriately named Elizabeth, Mary and Rose, were taken to Wellington shortly after their birth and placed under expert care at the Karitane Home during the winter, but they have now grown sufficiently to be able to be cared for in their own home.

“The babies are progressing very well,” remarked their mother, Mrs J C. Anderson, this morning. “In fact they are now very bonny.”

With their mother they arrived by train from Wellington on Saturday.
