Historical Notes: See article about this picture in Kapa-Mana News 20 August 1980, by William Secker. The painting is pre-1845, since the Hutt Road is not yet formed. The architecture of the raupo huts on the left shows the whalers' influence, with the tree-trunk verandah posts. If the attribution to Robert Park is correct, the work could be as early as 1840.
