Thames (NZ): Then & Now Tararu House identification

There are so many good quality digital images appearing at online websites and available from places such as The Treasury at Thames.
The photo below is at Auckland Museum Library, and queries whether this house is at Thames or not? Estimated as being taken in the early 1900s.
Source: Negative Number:PH-NEG-B10152

The photo below is of a house on Tararu Road, south of the shop. The house appears a match for the early photograph and is relatively unchanged from 100 years ago.
