Photograph [Mataura Paper Mill showing employees and machinery]

About this object

A (reproduction) black and white photograph depicting workers inside an area of the Mataura Paper Mill posing by machinery, a large roll of paper on one piece of equipment is in the background, and several rolls of paper are stacked on the floor.

We do not have the original photograph.

There are five males in the photograph, the older two are in working garb, while the younger three are wearing tidier clothing, perhaps indicating that they have different jobs. In the background, as well as the large paper roll machinery there appears to be at least one large belt running off a drive-shaft above head-height.

We would like to know more about the roles these employees performed.
