Reference Number: E-340-q-051/052

View from the Paremata side of Porirua Harbour, looking towards Whitirea Peninsula and Mana, with a wooden structure in the foreground and the buildings of Toms' whaling station in the background. 'Old Camp' is marked.The settlement on the opposite headland may be Kaiaua or Kahotea, one of several old Ngati Toa kainga along that shoreline. However it seems more likely to be European houses by 1861. The house of Lieutenant William Servantes was at the entrance to the harbour and is likely to be one of those shown at the foot of the hill opposite in the left-hand side of the view. The ruins of the Paremata Barracks are visible on the right-hand side, across the water, to the right of the harbour entrance
