This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 29th March, 1963. "Rangitane settlers whose cottage and outbuildings have had to be shifted back from the Manawatu River to make room for the high stopbanks being formed for flood protection by the Manawatu Catchment Board. The top picture shows (from left to right): Messrs O.E, Alve, H. W. Alve and C. H. Busch (nephew of the first two-named). Below are seen the foundations from which the cottage was shifted, and with an earth-moving machine and a fowlhouse in the back-ground (Below photo not included)."
