AUCKLAND CITY COUNCIL ‘TRAFFIC OFFICERS’ - 1935

John sent me this wonderful photograph from his family collection, he thought there might be other descendants of the men who might not have seen it before. He has included the names that he knows and if you recognise any of the ‘unknown’ men please leave a comment.
