Historical Notes: Note on back of file print reads "This photo was taken during the Manawatu River flood of Friday, 27 May, 1904. The buildings in the middle distance are those of Mardon Bros. Flaxmill, a one-stripper mill situated on the right (east) bank of the Manawatu River, about 2 and a half miles downstream from the mouth of the Oroua River. The flooded area in the foreground is part of the fibre drying paddocks. The Mardon brothers (Jack, Fred, Charlie and Harry) erected this mill in 1898 and ran it until 1905, when they shifted the mill to Oroua Bridge (now called Rangiotu). Mr Edward Child, who took this photo, was engine-driver at this mill in 1904. (Letter from I. R Matheson, 5 March 1968. 6/1)."
