About this objectThis photo was probably taken at Shag Pt, north of Dunedin. Mary Ellen was a miner's daughter who won a scholarship to Otago Girls’ High School around this time. However, she was not allowed to go because her father didn't believe that a young lady should travel on the train unaccompanied.
