Reference Number: E-296-q-159

View from the south bank of the Whanganui River, with a Maori family beside a toitoi in the foreground and Shakespeare Cliff visible futher along the bank. Across the river is a clear view of the town, with Rutland stockade on the hilltop to the right, York Stockade on its hill to the left and Christ Church in the valley between the two, along with houses and streets. Christ Church appears to be on the wrong side of the adjacent road (possibly just a failure of perspective). The large central building at the water's edge is Tyser and Watt's store house and private wharf. The large building at the water's edge on the far left is the Commercial Hotel. The two jetties have schooners moored at them.
