Barraud, Charles Decimus 1822-1897 :[Te Aro and Thorndon] 1852

Reference Number: C-007-007

The preliminary watercolour for Barraud's more finished version ("Wellington from Brooklyn" C-007-011) showing Te Aro flat with Waitangi Creek meandering through it on the right, a low hill in the foreground (the lower slopes between Mount Cook and Brooklyn) with Te Aro Pa visible on the shore to the right and houses, businesses and churches, more densely settled closer to Clay Point, the cliff face by the sea on the left, with Plimmer's Ark visible at its foot at the water's edge. The larger building near the waterfront may be the Maori Chapel. The road passing diagonally across Te Aro flat slightly right of centre is most likely to be Cuba Street. Thorndon is visible in the distance on the left. The large church on the left is St Peter's in Willis Street.
