Family connection with the history of flight in NZ - Lower Waitohi School Class of 1888-89
Photo on display in a cafe in Pleasant Point - in the original Post Office (highly recommended as an eating place - home of the famous Deneath custard slice) , it was in a larger display about Richard Peace who some believe flew a powered flight before the Wright brothers Richard_Pearse.
However what was more interesting was the Currie family in the same class photo. They were my mothers, fathers, mothers brothers and sisters - Tilly, John and Jeanie - that is some of my mothers great Aunts and Uncles. I also think Lizzie McClintock was a relative on mums side. Interesting what you find when you least expect it.
