Historical information
A photo of celebrations at Legacy House for a widow's 100th birthday. The event was reported in the 30 November issue of The Answer. 'Legacy widow Hilma enjoyed her 100th birthday recently with members of her family. In the photographs Hilma is joined by her grand-daughter Debbie and one of her great grand-children, Guy.'
When Made
A record of a widow reaching 100 years of age and Legacy marking the occasion with an event at Legacy House. Many events and lunches were held at Legacy house for widows to attend. They provided a social outlet and chance to get together with other widows. Also widows could drop into Legacy House during office hours whenever they were in the city for a cup of tea.
Inscriptions & Markings
Handwritten on reverse ' Hilma, Guy and Debbie' in blue pen and 'Pg 21, Pic C' in red pen.
