FALLOON Albert Ronald (Toby)
Construction of the Birchville Dam, 1930.
Three workmen standing at the base of a rock wall being excavated. Left: Albert Ronald (Toby) Falloon. Behind and above the men appear to be two chutes, possibly to channel excavation debris to the base of the wall from above.
Selwyn Toogood's father was responsible for this dam as one of six men in New Zealand qualified to design power dams. (information from Chris Benson).
