Hobbies of the 1960s

Rotorua Photo News 

This magazine published in the 1960s is a great source of information and photographs that show what past and present Rotorua folks did in their spare time (as well as work, school, engagements, weddings, coming of age parties and much more) 

The following images are from the March 14th 1964 edition and depict the Ngongotaha Garden Circle's annual flower show and a group of young people who got together and called themselves "The Crusadoes"
