“Maori meeting house was made to full size and in centre of picture behind a ground row and in front of rostrum can be seen the geyser steaming.
I had a 5 H.P. steam boiler (used for glass house heating) set up outside back of stage door and pipes running into centre stage and controlled steam bursts with a valve on off stage.
