[Mitford, John Guise] 1822-1854 :The Hobson album. [Auckland Harbour, 1844]

Reference Number: E-216-f-043

Auckland City from Mechanics Bay (now Stanley Street). The houses on the cliff in the middle distance mark the southern end of Official Bay. A flag flies on Point Britomart and on the higher ground to the left are St Paul's, the Barracks and the business enterprises at the top of Shortland Crescent. Government House lies in the sheltered hollow on the left. The complete spire on St Paul's suggests the painting was done after March 1844, the date of completion of the spire. The foreground is framed with tall flowering flax on the right and cabbage trees and other trees on the left.
