Komakorau Dragline drainage; Depression times PWC
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 00:48 GMT (UK) »
NZ Public Works Camp 1930's  Komakorau Stream drainage and re-alignment by dragline.

The two photos here are companion support photos, to the Public Works Camp photo already posted, and other photos supplied to me by Mary KEMPSTER in the 1980ís when we set out to research our heritage.

Of interest, the dragline machine is only about 100 metres downstream from meeting the bridge seen in the Camp photograph.
