Kaye Neely leaving from Christchurch with an NAC air hostess

1974

Kaye Neely from Miramar Wellington, departing at Christchurch Airport with an NAC air hostess. Kaye had come down for a holiday with her older cousins. As she was only four at the time she’d had to tell a “little white lie” saying she was five (the minimum age to travel unaccompanied. She was beautifully dressed in the new dress her mum had made for the occasion and wearing a hat and matching bag.

Judge's comments: This is a simple but highly evocative image with a wonderful story attached to it. It alludes to a time when air travel was far less common and something to dress up for. This delightful looking four year old is travelling by herself to stay with her cousins and is about to board the plane accompanied by an NAC air hostess. Akin to a rite of passage, her excitement as she glances back is palpable.
