Shows waterfront (now Wakefield St and Victoria, formerly Lombard St) with Ridgway and Guytons Wharf and store (centre) with a large set of scales alongside. The Exchange Building (with a Grecian frontage) is on the right and Bethune & Hunters stockyard premises behind. The long low building on the left is possibly Holmes' boat-building shed and Seagers Phoenix Foundry. The building with tall gables in the right rear is thought to be Hickson's Warehouse. Also shows boats, oxen, slaughtered animals, barrels, sailors, Maori and Pakeha in the street, and houses in the background, with bush-clad hills beyond.
