FEATURED PHOTO

On 26 May 1904, following four days of continuous heavy rain, the Whanganui River rose to flood level. At the height of the flood over four feet of water spilled into on Taupō Quay and most of the businesses in the area were abandoned. This photograph shows the river peaking just below the Town Bridge.
