Originally installed in the Thames branch of the National Bank, a news article in the Thames & Peninsula Gazette on 24 August 1976 states that the mural was relocated to Morrinsville. A photograph of the Morrinsville National Bank branch in 1988 confirms this. A maquette of the mural gives a good sense of the overall design, suggesting the work consisted of two panels.
