Typed on piece of paper glued to back: “Opening of the first traffic bridge over the Hokio Stream at Hokio Beach by Mayor Charles Blenkhorn c.1931. This was built with volunteer labour assisted by the County Council who supplied old bridge timber & some labour. Finance was raised by contributions. (photo donated by Mrs Harvey)”

Opening of the first traffic bridge across the Hokio Stream at Hokio Beach, 1931. The bridge was opened by the Mayor of Levin, Mr Charles Blenkhorn. At the time this photograph was taken, the bridge had not been declared “open”, as a ribbon runs across the bridge on the township side. A number of people are pictured using the footbridge north of the road bridge.
