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.
