The Malfroy geyser, shown not erupting, is surrounded by hot pools in the grounds of Rotorua’s Government Sanatorium and Baths, also known as Government Garden. This photo was taken in 1908 by William Price. The geyser was named after Camille Malfroy, the government engineer at Rotorua, who found that he could manipulate geysers to erupt by controlling the flows of spring water.
