Curtis - p. 105 - 'Memories of Molo and Lumbwa' by Mrs Betty Tennent ' - sketch map shows Mr Waters and Mr Higgins at Molo Saw Mills
Playne - The Waters & Neilsen Sawmills - These mills are close to the railway station at Escarpment. The proprietors have permission to cut timber in this district and they pay the Forestry Dept. a royalty on the cubic measurement, the Dept. marking the trees. The output is about 1000 square feet per day, and is mostly juniper (or cedar). Messrs Waters & Neilsen are of opinion that a big export business in timber will be done later on when the railway rates are lower. ....... Every class of sawing is undertaken including shingles and sleepers. Hauling work is also done by contract. The demand for timber is entirely local, and is quite equal to the supply. The two partners do all the work themselves with the help of about 30 natives.
