About this object

This photograph is of the Wyndham A. & P. Show in 1928.

A great attendance of people are grouped all around the ring, cattle in the foreground, horses lined up across the back and the Pipe Band to the front. Tents, some housing sideshows of the day, are in the background. Some Wyndham houses can be seen in the distance. It is thought that this photograph of the opening of the new showgrounds (bounded by Balaclava and Pera Streets) where they are still situated today. Two thousand people attended and Mr T Golden representing the Southland County Council declared the grounds open.
