[Smith, William Mein] 1799-1869 :[A road through bush; probably the Hutt Valley during the making of the Petone to Taita Gorge Road in 1842]
Reference Number: B-009-013
Two men resting beside a narrow road newly cleared through native bush, including a tall tree fern, with a river to the left. Could possibly be the Karori or Porirua areas, but more likely to show the making of the road between Petone and Taita Gorge in 1842, overseen by the artist, who was then Chief Surveyor.
