Historical Notes: Photograph taken near Poho O Rawiri. The pa at that time stood much closer to the Turanganui River. Wilson's Redoubt was erected ca September 1865 in response to Hauhau activity. Poho O Rawiri was given a sod wall soon after. Leonard was living nearby at Waikahua cottage at this time, and could have taken the photograph before he left the district prior to the battle at Waerenga A Hika. It would be safer to assume, however, that the photograph was taken on his return in February 1866. (information from Sheila Robinson, Gisborne Museum & Arts Centre. See AT 13/12/4, 27/8/90)
