The following photos are of the Pearce boys and an unknown friend or relation in a cute tent. The photo was taken around 1920. We are not sure where they are camping but it is probably somewhere quite local to the Christchurch region, New Zealand. It looks like dry hard ground they are on and there is a building visible on the left hand side.
One can imagine the excitement that two smaller boys would have had camping out for the night. It looks like they are fairly well set up as it looks like some kind of lamp hanging in the back of the tent.
The Pearce family had four boys and from photos we have, they were into hunting, camping, travelling and lots of boys stuff. My great grandad Arthur Cyril Pearce was also into photography, hence why we now have these wonderful pics from the past.
From left to right are Albert Pearce, William Pearce, Walter Pearce and a friend! And behind the camera was my great grandad!
