Historical Notes: The view looks south towards Petone beach. H. W. Petre's house is on the far right, close to the western Hutt hills, while the other houses shown in the distance are probably along Petone foreshore. Petre later moved further north in the Hutt Valley and built "Woburn". Moreing's Creek enters the Hutt River from the west.
