Abbot, Edward Immyns, d 1849 :[A high country surveyors' camp in bleak conditions, Otago. ca 1847].

Reference Number: B-155-010

Shows two bearded surveyors attempting to boil a billy over an open camp fire, in miserable weather, on a treeless plateau with mountains in the background. One man, smoking a pipe, is dressed in a torn jacket, and attempts to warm his hands over the fire. His companion, at the left, tries to shelter the fire from the wind with his hat. At the far left, a miserable dog stands in front of the opening of a tent. The smoke blows from the fire in a direction opposite to what one would expect judging by the slant of the rain.
