Newspaper Article – Haystack

The circular haystack is fast disappearing from the New Zealand scene. These stacks, taken on the property of Mr Jack Guerin, Mangatahi, are believed to be the last of their kind in Hawke’s Bay. They were thatched by 76-year-old Mr Jack Edwards [Edward?] who has done this kind of work for more than half a century.
