Girls in Khaki


Two ladies identified only as Sylvia and Nell, dressed in khaki military uniform as a show of support to New Zealand soldiers on active service overseas.

This portrait postcard was taken at Alva Studios on Cuba Street in Wellington c.1915.

"The Alva Studio, 26 Cuba street, is now under entirely new management, Mr H. Fawson, a well-known Auckland photographer, having purchased the business. General alterations and improvements have been effected, and the studio is now one of the most up-to-date in the city. First-class work and entire satisfaction is guaranteed all patrons." NZ Times, 9 July 1915.
