View of Lyttelton Habour from the Bridle Path, on the hills above the town. The first four ships are in port, with passengers leaving the Cressy via a wharf and walking up into the town. Several large buildings are near the water's edge, including immigration barracks, John Robert Godley's house and the offices of the Lyttelton Times newspaper just below the hill on the left. The Sumner Road is formed. Other small houses and tents are dotted around. Immigrants are carrying baggage and some have wheeled carts. A family is greeting a man building his house in the left foreground and a clothes line is in the right foreground. A building on the far right is marked in pencil "C Store H" [?]. On the verso is a schematic map of the location of Christchurch, showing the River Courtney (Waimakariri), Papanui Bush, the Avon River and Riccarton with William and John Deans' property, notes about land purchases and a list of names of land-owning Canterbury settlers.
