The photograph was thought to have been taken of the corner of Te Awe Awe street and Awatea Terrace, Palmerston North. In May 1941 the Manawatu River flooded about 250 hectares of the city. A stop bank between Fitzroy Street and Jickell Street had been constructed but it proved inadequate for the flood waters.
