The flax mill, Lower Parihaka Road, run by James, and later by George, Rutherford, father and brother of Ernest Rutherford (1st Baron Rutherford of Nelson). Shows workmen at a swamp's edge in front of the mill buildings, to the right, with a steamer at sea behind. The soaking ponds and mills are surrounded by flax, and two poles with processed flax are in the water. The mill comprises two low wooden buildings with a separate tank in front, in which a man is standing, possibly pounding flax in water. Another man stands by a tall structure in front of the left-hand building.
