Maypole Dance

1934

This photo, dated c.1934, shows some district maids of the time lined up for their photo before doing their maypole dance. You can see some of the ribbons coming down from the maypole. The location is the grounds of the big house in Mathers Road owned by Mr & Mrs Digby Neave. The Digby Neaves were in the nature of patrons of St Martins church which at that time was part of a parish along with St Mary's Halswell. They opened their grounds once a year, squire-like, for a parish garden party. The garden party included sack races, three-legged races and egg and spoon contests. As far as I can remember the maypole dance was a one-off, though. Many of the parents of the girls made great effort and some sacrifice to dress their daughters for this event as it was held during the Great Depression of the early thirties. According to the Christchurch telephone directory of the time, the Digby Neaves lived at 35 Mathers Road.

Folk dancing group, Phillipstown School

1940

This photo was taken in the Phillipstown School playground, near the Nursery Road entrance. It was the folk dancing group, ready and trained for the big Christchurch primary schools celebration on the Centenary of NZ 1840/1940. It was held at Lancaster Park. All the primary schools submitted such a group and we all danced together. The boys likewise - gymnastic groups from each school performed en masse. Our mothers were given the dress pattern. They had to go to Armstrongs Drapery Store to buy the material which had been ordered in bulk. The material design was the same, but there was a choice of 2 colours. Our mothers made the dresses. I am on the right of the second group from the left.
