This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 12th January, 1963. "Neville Dickey was sitting on a pipe in the middle of his lawn when it began sinking into the ground. He then prodded a stick into the hole and found he could not reach the bottom. Joined by his brother and a friend, they pushed the garden hose down. When the photograph was taken the boys pulled the hose out and the depth of the hole was found to be well over 50ft. It would appear that the subterranean stream runs under the lawn."
