The imposing building is probably the administration building (see photographs by Viaud in 1850s - NZ&P q919.6211 VIA, where a building resembling this in its tower, is described as "le batiment de manutention" - facade in 1859 is slightly different). The building in Pottier's work also features in Henry Byam Martin's "Papeete - Otaheite from my cabin window. March [ca 1847] - see file print - location of original unknown.
