After a design competition failed to produce a suitable stamp image for the 1956 Health issue, a photograph from The Auckland Weekly News by J F Louden of his grandchildren Graeme and Peter Wilson playing in an orchard in 1946 was chosen for the stamps. The design was changed to set the scene in a garden.



Two easily distinguished shades of the 1½d stamp exist with the dark sepia brown variety considerably rarer.
