I received the above photos of Movarie pictured at Mansion House, Kawua Island. Taken by Tudor Collins, most likely in the late 1940 > early 1960 period.
The photos are marked with “Goodfellows aboard,” the Collin’s & the Goodfellow’s were local identities in the Warkworth Takatu region & both families owned properties, at Takatu Peninsula, pre &post WWII.
Movarie is featured elsewhere on WW but these photos are so good they deserved to appear on their own, rather than be added to an existing story 🙂 (photos ex Ken Ricketts)
Just back from Lake Rotoiti Classic & Wooden Boat Parade weekend – 100’s of photos – will do a WW story on Wednesday, when everyone is back from holiday 😉
REMEMBER – CYA PICNIC AT MOTUIHE ISLAND ON TUESDAY
