The Tribune (NZ) - - WHAT'S ON -

This pho­to­graph of the Ash­hurst-Palmer­ston North Wheel­bar­row Race­was con­tributed to Manawatu Her­itage by amem­ber of the com­mu­nity. Four­teen teams from all over the North Is­land com­peted in the race on Au­gust 12, 1961. News­pa­per re­ports in­di­cate that wheel trou­ble­was the­most com­mon pit­fall for the com­peti­tors. Mayor GMRen­nie pre­sented the win­ners, from Tau­ranga, with a minia­ture wheel bar­row­for their ef­fort. Manawatu Her­itage has thou­sands of pho­tographs like this one that shows the best of your re­gion’s his­tory!
