This photo was taken on the 17-9-1903 when Mr Alexander Hatrick and his wife (Wanganui Mayor and Mayoress ) took their own riverboat the Ps Manuwai out on a picnic. They seemed to have liked dressing them up with foliage in those days (this one has branches tied to the outer rails) and many photos of his boats show flowers and vines in the dining rooms on most of his passenger fleet
