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.
