The men are identified as follows (from left): Unknown; Allan; Climo (?); Rog Climo (?); Charlie (?) Mills; Fred Eggers. On the left is the portable steam engine which powered the sawmill. This sawmill was owned by Jim Climo, with another Climo family member perhaps, and Charlie Eggers. It was situated on Steven Williamson's property on the terrace south of the Waituna Stream, a few hundred yards west of No 377 Main Road and south of the road junction at the settlement of Waituna West. The mill operated for about 2.5 years and cut out a large patch of bush on Williamson's property. Charlie Eggers then went to Raurimu and milled there.
