[Creator unknown] :Plan of proposed town, Waitara, Taranaki [map with ms annotations]

Reference Number: MapColl-832.299gmbd/[184-]/Acc.22904

An engraved topographic base map of the area from the River Mongaraka, off the Waiongona River, to the Waitara River, originally drawn by the cartographer, has been used to show the proposed town plan of Waitara, which he added at a later date. Streets with sections are drawn in a grid-like pattern on both banks of the Waitara River. A pa site is prominently marked within the grid and four other pa sites are drawn. A proposed dock, railway terminus, racecourse, park, government reserve, a prison and cemeteries are marked. The road from New Plymouth, named as the Devon Line, links with other roads running into the town. The site of a bridge is shown linking the settlements on both riverbanks. High and low water marks are drawn and the highest points on the river to which the Neap and Spring tides reach.
