Sanderson, J :Great fire at Port Lyttelton. 1870

Reference Number: B-079-006

View from the Sumner Road looking towards the township, with the hills on the right, the port on the left. A large part of central Lyttelton is in flames, with smoke billowing out towards the port. Probably a night-time scene, since the nearer buildings have the light of the flames reflecting off their sides.
