There was an Annie Isabel Newman born 5 January 1893, daughter of William and Amelia. School records have her attending Kauaeranga Boys, then Thames High School in 1906. The records state the family home was in Queen Street.
In 1898, an Annie Newman was a flower girl at the wedding of Miss Elizabeth Billings to Henry Taylor. In 1905, the same year the postcard was sent - Annie Newman was in Standard Six and received a first class certificate for attendance.
Hopefully this was the right Annie, interestingly in 1905, a girl in her class was called Olive. So maybe it was her school friend Olive Wylie who was the poster of the card!
