Hodder Family and House
This photograph of the exterior of a house, initially believed to be located in Whangamomona, shows three men posing with six children seated and standing on the new building work. The name 'Vince Bond' is written on the inside of one of the windows of the house. This image has been identified as the house of the Hodder family on Gill Street, New Plymouth and the man in the suit as Edward (Ted) Walter Hodder. The older boy is Ted's son, Alfred (Fred) Walter Groves Hodder. The girl with long hair is Ted's daughter, Adeline Gertrude Hodder. The small boy is Edward Donald (Don) Hodder. One of the two older girls is Dorothy Marie Hodder. When the house was later sold for removal, it was found that the roof was not strong enough to be transported so it was demolished. There is a motel on the site now.
