About this object

A black and white photograph of six girls at a train social held in the old Mataura Town Hall in 1958. These socials were an annual event for Mataura students who traveled to Gore High School on the daily train.

The girls are from left to right in the front row: Linda Pavitt (nee Walker), Judy Bryce (nee Webb), Valarie McKinnon (maiden name), Margaret Graham (maiden name), Lois Millar (nee Cullen). We don't know the name of the young woman standing in middle back, please let us know if you know her. The unidentified man would have been a chaperone at the dance.
