A caravan holiday

A caravan holiday

This family have parked their caravan near a spectacular stand of tree ferns at Red Beach, Ōrewa, north of Auckland, in 1950. Caravans, often with an awning to provide extra living space,  became popular after the Second World War when car ownership boomed. Caravans were a modest but comfortable and economical form of accommodation, and could be towed to or permanently parked at scenic holiday places.
