Caption

(old flaxmill at Tauranga Bay) this description on rear of this print is I believe not correct.  This flaxmill was owned by the WALL brothers, who lived at Tauranga Bay, but the mill and flax cutting area was actually at the mouth of the Okari River which was adjacent to Tauranga Bay, note the log skids and also the gent with the white beard seated on the dray wheels and axle, he was Nicholas BEBIL, a Greek, who for many years was the ferryman on the Okari River
