This gallery features scenes from the filming of the 1928 movie, A Daughter of Invercargill.

The film starred Alma Walters, an H and J Smith worker, as the heroine,a “lovely school teacher from Dogtown”, Neil Jack as the hero Bill Cowcocy, and W H Cockburn as the villain Freddy Fishface.

The film's maker, Rudall Hayward, toured New Zealand using local casts to produce comedies. He worked with a stock script and screened the completed film within a week to make a profit.
