Hiscocks, Ercildoune Frederick :Sunday on the Day's Bay steamer en route for Rona Bay (the new Jerusalem). [ca 1910]

Reference Number: NON-ATL-0060

A scene on the Days Bay ferry, showing a harpist and a violinist entertaining passengers crossing Wellington Harbour. One of the listeners, a man with a white beard and top hat, has been identified Rabbi van Stern (i.e. Van Staveren?); the woman on his right is probably his wife. Several of the passengers are depicted with large noses, and this, the presence of Rabbi Van Staveren, combined with the title 'the new Jerusalem' suggests that the cartoonist is implying that a large number of Jewish daytrippers fill the Days Bay steamer on a Sunday, or that many of the inhabitants of Rona Bay are Jewish.
