This picture shows the "scarf" being cut in the trunk of the tree by an axeman, while the two men at the rear operate a cross-cut saw. The donor stated that these men (all unidentified) were employed at Climo and Eggers' Sawmill at Waituna West. The sawmill was owned by Jim Climo, with another Climo perhaps, and Charlie Eggers. It was situated on Steven Williamson's property on the terrace south of the Waituna Stream, a few hundred yards west of No 377 Main Road and south of the road junction at the settlement of Waituna West. The mill operated for about 2.5 years and cut out a large patch of bush on Williamson's property. Charlie Eggers then went to Raurimu and milled there.
