In 1940 the Alexander Library in Whanganui sent a stack of books to the Waiouru Military Camp for trainee soldiers and other military personnel as part of the war effort. The photograph shows staff members posed in front of the Library with a truck loaded and ready to go. This photograph comes from the Tesla Studios Collection.
