Photos from times past

Picnic in New Zealand, about 1940. My grandmother is bottom right and mother standing by the tree.
Late last year I took lots of photos of the photos in my late mother's old albums. My aim was to create some printed albums for family members. It is taking a lot of work and a long time as each photo needs work. I keep thinking I have finished, then I discover a photo I have overlooked and need to reorganise the album.

The photos show that people in the early to mid 20th century made their own fun. There are lots of photos of picnics and other gatherings. The photo above looks like a picnic, but where is the food?
