Norman LeafAbout this object
Norman Leaf is fixing a chain that is holding a log onto a kateraman or sledge. The kateraman is sitting on a 'skidded row' which allows the bullock team to haul the load more easily.
These logs were from Sterlings Bush and put into the river at Sterling Reserve, Matakohe, then rafted to West's Mill, Helensville.
