Hauhungaroa Workingmen's Club

Hauhungaroa Workingmen's Club

These men are standing in the doorway of their local workingmen's club in Hauhungaroa, just west of Lake Taupō, in the 1950s. Such clubs provided a place where predominantly manual workers, such as bushmen, farm labourers or fencers, could drink, yarn and enjoy a game of pool or darts.
