Dad Peter, Mum Norma and Paul, together with a family friend, share a picnic by the car in the vicinity of Christchurch, in 1965.

Date: 1965.

Highly Commended entry in the 2012 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt  by Paul Slater.

Judges' Comments:

I reckon every family has a version of this shot – the picnic by the car. This is a classic example of that most Kiwi of photos.

Jandals and biscuit tins. And isn’t a Christchurch picnic always more comfortable with the easterly–sheltering qualities of the family car to keep things cheerful?
