We recent featured a photo sent to us from Robina Davies who was trying to identify those in the picture from her mother's collection.
Her mother was Olive Whitelaw, who played cricket for Wellington Technical College Old Girls. She suspected it might be from before 1939.
Journalist and sports historian Ron Palenski has come up with a name for us.
"I'm pretty sure the pic is of Violet Aline Caton and Stuart Dick on their wedding day at All Saints', Kilbirnie, on Feb 26 1944.
The big clue was women in the uniform of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps presenting a bouquet of vegetables; another clue was that it was most likely a newspaper photo because of the quality.
Stuart Dick is wearing an RSA badge in the photo. He was a sergeant in the 25th Battalion."
He even attached a picture of the gravestone.

Gigibelle boutique dress

Bonnie from Johnsonville

Beautiful mia label. Size 12. The drape of the fabric is gorgeous. Lite enough to sway but not too thin and floaty. Flattering cut against legs making them look long. The colour is a burnt redy orange, a bit darker than my camera will show. Last photo more true to colour than the others.
