I recently obtained an old photograph album and loose photos that belonged to Harold Trueman. After Harold died, the photographs were retained by the Palmerston North City Council from when they cleaned out the house that Harold rented. Catheryn Te Paiho contacted me about the photos and sent the collection. Some of the photographs are labelled on the back, but many are not.
I have added a page to my genealogy web site that has some of the photos. This post has several additional photos. Please comment if you can help identify or confirm identity.
George Henry Trueman (1876-1961) and his wife Mabel Alice Halpin (1894-1935) had a daughter (Thelma Rita 1927-1987) and two sons (Harold 1930-2011 and Alick 1932-2006). The family lived in Palmerston North. Most of the photos in the collection are of members of the family.
