Caption

The family of Annie & Emerson Clarkson and some friends by the Sumner pier. The boys are Frank (William), Emerson and my father George who is the youngest child. There are also 2 other unidentified children. Frank was killed in France in 1918 but Emerson survived. The girls are Margaret, Alice, Frances, Beatrice, Susann. Margaret became a teacher and Frances, Beatrice & Susann nurses. The latter three had eventful lives overseas from the 1920s - 1940s, including nursing on ambulance trains in the war.   They returned to Christchurch in the late 1940s and opened the popular Pamela Cake Kitchen on the corner of Strowan and Normans roads.
