Milling kauri, 1900s

Milling kauri, 1900s

The steamship Melbourne is being loaded with sawn kauri at Chadwick’s sawmill on the Pahi River, Northland, about 1907. After Europeans began settling in New Zealand, timber milling became important, supplying both domestic and overseas markets. Large, steam-driven sawmills were built along waterways and on harbours.
