Description

Looks back on the effort by the Oxenbridge family from Australia (brothers Bert and Ned and their nephew Victor) to divert the Shotover River in the early 1900s in an attempt to access alluvial gold in a section near the Moonlight Trail. Explains why a nineteenth century portable steam traction engine still sits in the middle of the river.
