Skating In North Hagley Park.


 The photograph was taken and developed by my father Harry Baldwin, with a Graflex camera with a glass plate film holder.

Date: Probably 1940s.

Highly commended entry in the 2014 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt from Bruce Baldwin.

Judge's Comment:  Skating in North Hagley Park is not something you see everyday, so it was a pleasure to come across this image. The photographer has really captured some of the fun and excitement to be had for all. What I see as a real strength in this image are the candid moments it captures. There are people engaged in lots of different activities and you can almost hear their conversations
