The largest flaxmill ever built in New Zealand - "Miranui" about 1910.
In the foreground is the main entrance to the mill off the Tokomaru-Shannon main road.
The mill buildings are, from left: the stripping shed, the scutching shed, the mill office and the dining room with the bunkhouses at the rear. This view is looking towards the Tararua ranges. Note the loaded wagon and horses in the centre.
