Postcard [Wooden Cottages, Mataura]

About this object

Undated black and white postcard of two wooden cottages in Mataura. The photograph was taken from the east bank of the Mataura River looking down on Kana Street and Doctors Road. The Mataura River, Falls, Paper Mill and Freezing Works are in the background. We think the house on the right (on Doctors Road) was owned by the Winning family.
