Archibald “Boyd” Laird

From his daughter Heather Laird on the Clan Line Facebook Page

I recently came across these photos of my late father - (Archibald) Boyd Laird 1933-1987.

I thought they would be of interest to the group.

The information with each photo is what my dad has noted on the back of the photo.

He was the ships carpenter.  

Mum and dad emigrated to New Zealand in 1965.  

Once they came to Lyttelton dad worked on the wharf but he passed away in 1987. Mum still lives over in Lyttelton.

Both my brothers have sea based jobs - my older boroher Finlay is one of  the Lyttelton pilots and my younger brother Archie is a commercial fisherman out of Lyttelton
