Reference Number: C-007-011

View from the lower slopes between Brooklyn and Mount Cook, with cows, a herdsman and his dog on the road in the foreground. On the right lie the swamps of Te Aro, with Te Aro Pa visible along the foreshore, along with scattered houses. To the left of the pa area, the road passing diagonally across the plain is probably Cuba Street. The most prominent building on the foreshore is either the Maori or the Wesleyan Chapel in Manners St. The cliff at the water's edge to the left is Clay Point with Plimmer's Ark visible moored in the water at its base. On the far left in the plain area, the large church building is St Peter's, Willis St. Thorndon is in the background to the left, with Pipitea Point (now Thorndon Quay) and Kumutoto Spit (now Midland Park) both visible.
