Historical Notes: 'Making New Zealand' caption reads 'The survivors of the crew of the "Dundonald", wrecked in 1907, lived in these grass huts for some months. The miseries they suffered in the twentieth century, described in "The Castaways of Disappointment Island", by the Rev H Escott-Inman, give a vivid idea of what stranded sealers must have endured one hundred years earlier.'
