From desolate swamp to arable land: snapshots of the Prime Minister's visit to the Hauraki Plains, Thames District, Auckland. A group of Hauriki pioneers: A gathering to welcome Mr Massey on his tour of inspection of the new settlements in the Thames District. Hauraki Plains is the present title for what is known till lately as the Piako Swamp; and the change of name has a significance. The Piako swamp was a vast desolate stretch of water-ridden mud and peat, clad thickly with raupo and rushes. The Hauraki Plains are lands fast becoming dry, and fast attracting settlers, and through dotted with little centres so new that their names have not yet reached much beyond the locality and the offical maps they are growing crops and carrying stock. Last week a tour of the plains was made by the Prime Minister (Hon. W.F. Massey).
