Thames (NZ): Sawmilling article in "The Treasury Journal'

A new article in The Treasury Journal.
Title: "Sawmilling at Thames and the Coromandel" by John Gordon

This is a very comprehensive article covering the history of sawmilling all over the Coromandel Peninsula.
The bonus being a wonderful collection of photographs.

A reminder that there are 3 wonderful oral history recordings by the Managh family of Thames, regarding the history and their involvement with the Thames Sawmill at Kopu. These are available at The Treasury, Thames.
