View from above Saltwater Creek. The low hill with buildings on the right is Church Hill, with the fortifications around the emigration barracks (pre-fabricated) where Nelson Cathedral now stands. Just below the hill, in Nile Street, is the Bishop's School (still standing). Trafalgar Street, the main street, runs down from Church Hill to the left, through the buildings that line it. The flat gap near the hill is where Hardy Street now runs across Trafalgar Street; the next, one block further left, is now Bridge Street. In the far left centre are the watermill and the brewery, the first in New Zealand, exporting beer to Wellington and Auckland. Two male travellers, one with a swag, are in the foreground. A woman is pursuing three cows in right foreground.
