Photo taken between Sunday 18 Feb and Friday 23 Feb 1973. The 'unnamed' ship in the background is P&O's Piako. The 'bulldozer', actually a front-end loader is loading LA and LC rail wagons of fertiliser from the port stockpile and bound for the Kempthorne Prosser fertiliser works at Aramoho, Wanganui.
