About this object

A studio photograph of Peter Crow and Eliza Crow née Eliza Burton. The little girl in the photograph is their niece, the eldest daughter of Peter's sister. There are several interesting inscriptions on the back of the frame. The first reads: 'This is my Dad's father & mother with his eldest sisters eldest girl. My dad was born in 1844 New Zealand his people came out from England his father had been over once before but returned home before finally coming out to stay.' The other inscription tells us that in 1945, Rena opened the frame up to clean it before hanging it in her lounge. The handwriting of both inscriptions matches.
