Greenwood, Sarah, 1809?-1889 :Wellington Harbour from Tiakiwai above Tinakori Road. 1881.

Reference Number: B-156-021

Shows a view of Wellington Harbour with Thorndon Quay or Esplanade, the year before the reclamation started. The square object along the pier at the end of the esplanade may be Thorndon swimming baths, although the later turretted version was built out into the harbour from reclaimed land. The foreground shows lawns surrounded with tress, probably the garden at Tiakiwai.
