Caravanning,  Selwyn Motor Camp, 1968

Children play in front of an Oxford caravan while adults relax on camp chairs at the Selwyn Motor Camp in January 1968. The cabin in the background was removed around 1996 but the motor camp was still running in the 2000s under the name Timaru Top 10 Holiday Park.
