Wool classing

Wool classing

Wool was the single most important product exported from New Zealand for over 100 years. Wool classing and handling was on the syllabus for most students at Lincoln College, but the college also ran special courses for wool classers. These students are at their first class, probably in the 1930s or 1940s.
