Labour MP Margaret Shields on duty for McHappy Day in 1986. Dominion Post Collection, Alexander Turnbull Library. Ref: EP/ 1986/3175/10. Photo: IAN MACKLEY/ EVENING POST FROM THE ALEXANDER TURNBULL LIBRARY ARCHIVES By KIRSTY WILLIS Labour Minister of Parlia- ment for Kapiti Margaret Shields (now Dame Marga- ret) is behind the counter at Porirua McDonald's in June 1986. She is wearing a fashion- able cowl neck jumper and the sort of classic paper hat that now sells on internet trading sites as vintage''. It is McHappy Day, when some of the day's sales go to a charity. This time money is being raised for the New Zealand Commonwealth Games team. Just think, our 38 medals could have been fuelled by burgers. The two boys are Marga- ret's nephews Alex Ibrahim, and his brother Antony (foreground). The Porirua McDonald's was the first in New Zealand and it opened in June 1978, 23 years after the first one in the United States. It was on the corner of Cobham Court and Hagley St before relocat- ing to Kenepuru Dr in 2009. New Zealanders have become more and more interested in food since the photo. 1986 was the year the first Cuisine magazine was publi- shed and it was also the year Peter Gordon set up the orig- inal Sugar Club restaurant in central Wellington.
