More Info →Tait - Jamieson Homestead and Cowshed Under Water

The Tait-Jamieson cowshed and homestead at the end of Koehler Road, surrounded by the huge flood of late January 1953. This flood holds the record as the largest on thee Manawatu River since records began [time of statement 1999]. Normally the river looped near the top of the photo, its banks being marked by a line of trees. Palmerston North is in the background with the Ruamahanga Crescent / gold course area also underwater. See ‘A Time of Transition’ by Val Burr, page 29.
