This camp is on a Northland forest edge, around 1910. The huts are a timber-framed lean-to and an A-frame structure roofed with nīkau fronds. The tools are different from those used to find gum on the mānuka scrublands. Many of the men are holding grubbers, used to search around the base and roots of large kauri trees.
