Photograph, First Prize Otautau Show

About this object

This photograph was taken in 1913 at the Wallace A & P show in Otautau. The driver is Andy Willis and one of the three ladies is Ruth Stewart nee Mills.
The show was started in 1905 on a site near the new school and was an important, and much anticipated, annual event. It was an opportunity for the local farming community to get together in their Sunday-Best to showcase and celebrate all things agricultural. Prizes, awarded for best in class, were always keenly contested.
