- Abraham, Caroline Harriet, 1809?-1877
Shows a general view of Wellington Harbour, probably from the position of the Bolton Street Cemetery. There are several dwellings in the foreground, a flagpole on the foreshore at the left, near a wharf which juts out into the harbour. The flagpole probably marks the site of Government House. On the foreshore at centre right, is a building with a square turret, with a pointed roof, probably on Lambton Quay
The house roof in the left near section adjacent to bushes and trees may be those of the house of Robert Park. His house was adjacent to and below the Bolton Street Cemetery
