Category Winner: Your People 2018 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt.

Judges' notes: "This image gives a sense of time and place with the distinctive Castle Rock and Port Hills in the background and the iconic family working together picking fruit.  We can see a way of life that is almost lost in Christchurch, the rural orchard life so close to the city in the 1950s.

The judges like that the photo gives a feeling of a hot Christchurch summers day and the romantic notion of fruit picking."

Biographical Note
