More Info →Hauling and Traming Logs to Albert Adsett's Sawmill, King Country

Albert Adsett was a son of Henry Adsett, sawmiller, of Sandon and Taonui. Albert worked at his brother's sawmill at Pohangina during the 1890s and early 1900s and by 1907 had a mill of his own at Oroua Bridge (now Rangiotu). He later milled in the King Country. On the right is the log hauler (a steam boiler and winch). In the centre background is a log on the skids. On left is a log on the trolley about to be taken by tram to the mill. Note the whistle - this was used for signalling the hauler.
