One hundred crowded years

The Government Film Studios at Miramar produced a centennial film, One hundred crowded years. It was dedicated to the European pioneers of New Zealand and proudly portrayed the way the country had been transformed by a century of material progress. This clip shows a pioneering man fashioning a home 'by axe and saw' from the bush, while his wife undertakes domestic chores in primitive but picturesque conditions.
