Each Parish in the Diocese gets its turn for  concentrated  archival  work, and this week it was the former Parish of Sydenham-Beckenham. Amongst their records was  this photograph.  It’s always useful when dating photographs to be able to spot a member of your family.  This has given me a clue that this photograph was taken in the Provincial Council Chambers in about 1949-1950.   The Bishop, Campbell West West-Watson who can be seen in the front right hand corner facing the camera, retired in 1951.  There are other individuals  who can be recognised from around this time.  If you can name anyone, please contact the archivist archivesdiochch@anglicanlife.org.nz
