In late September of 1907, Feilding experienced three consecutive days of dismal, rainy weather. Masses of water accumulated in Feilding streets and surrounding countryside. Water came right up over the surface of Kimbolton Road, the Railway Yards were covered, as was the footpath from the Council Chambers to Manchester Square. The Oroua and Kiwitea rivers were in heavy flood, but fortunately there was no damage along the banks. The Makino Stream reached the highest level it had in ten years prior to the flood.

This photograph was taken on September 26, 1907, and is thought to be from the Feilding Star.
