Caption

Black and white photograph of Richard Scott Surtees (known as Scott) at Tahawai Railway Station in 1940. He is there seeing off his mother, Katikati photographer Emily Charlotte Sophia Surtees (nee Stewart) (1857-1957). Emily's husband Richard had died the previous year at Katikati and she was moving to live in Torbay, Auckland which accounts for the many packages and potted plant waiting for pickup at the railway station. Emily died in Torbay, aged 99, on 2 May 1957. She was cremated at Waikumete Cemetery. Scott died in Torbay on 12 July 1955 and was also buried in Waikumete Cemetery. Photograph made available to Tauranga City Libraries courtesy of Ellen McCormack and Elizabeth Smith (Marton). Tauranga City Libraries Image Number: 13-1439.
