Description: 
Interior view of portion of the Commonwealth-New Guinea Timbers Limited plywood factory at Bulolo, one of the most modern plywood plants in the world. Commonwealth-New Guinea was formed by an agreement, signed in 1952, between the Commonwealth Government and Bulolo Gold Dredging Limited. The £1,300,000 mill was opened in 1954 and produces high-grade plywood veneers - about 30 million square feet annually, calculated on a 3/16 inch basis. In 1959-60 over 30 million square feet of plywood valued at over £1.3 million was expected. Exports of all Papua and New Guinea timber products, including plywoods and veneers, for 1959-60 were valued at about £1.7 million.
