Historical Notes: Identification of subject and location from Godber's own index at TL 6/1/15 (filed in Photographic Archives), in the 1/2 plate sequence under: C. Carved house (2). Ohinemutu (?). 1931. Box 122). Identified in Cresswell's book "Maori meeting houses of the North Island" as having been built in 1888 at the Kearoa Marae, Horohoro. It was shifted to Tarewa alongside the house Taharangi about 1921, and was shifted back to Horohoro at a later date. This image shows Kearoa to be at Tarewa, next to Taharangi Meeting House in 1931, from the bell on a pedestal to the left of the building. In image at APG-1786-1/2 showing Taharangi Meeting House, the same bell is visible on the right.
