Wellington College Sports Snapshots

Day 28 Friend.
Here’s another great find from the New Zealand PapersPast website. My great Grandfather, Francis Kitto sitting smoking a pipe with others that might be relations. It’s part of a page and a half spread of snap shots of people enjoying the Wellington College Sports. He is one of the few people named in the piece. I wondered if the mayor was a friend.
