A bush scene from somewhere, somewhen

My dear friend over at Mad Bush has seen this image before:

I've decided to give this one to Special Collections as well. It's in a bad way, quite faded. At least they'll be able to provide the right atmospheric storage conditions.

Some details from the photo follow:


  1. Having another look at that I can see a lot of dead Kauri and totara trees there. Looks like they're cutting up timber lengths for a building of some kind. Could well be Northland from all the Totara there or Waitakere's maybe? Still a very cool photo. One of my favourites.

  2. Quite a hive of industry they had going there, with so many people in the shot. It is a cool image.
