Description

The first and left-hand section of a three part panoramic view of New Plymouth, shortly after its establishment as a New Zealand Company settlement. Shows the mouth of the Huatoki Stream and the waterfront of the township, with cows drinking at the water's edge, the stream bridged, with a canoe sailing along it, houses and various features indicated, including "Point near the mouth of the Waitera [Waitara] River, Company's Emigration Depot, Company's Hospital and forge, Mr Merchant['s house], Messrs Perry, Mr Shaw, Company's Survey Officer, Wesleyan Chapel, Company's Store, Devon Hotel, Freemason Arms, Mr Ibbotson, Mr Scott, Mr Lakeman, Church, Messrs Vercoe, Mr Webster, Mr Grube". A small boat is being dragged out of a tent shelter on the left, several people are tilling crops in their gardens, there are sheep on the background hills to the left, people and horses and carts in the streets, and barrels outside the Freemason's Arms.

The accompanying text reads: The spectator stands with his back to the sea, in the garden of the [New Zealand or Plymouth] Company's agent. There is only an open Roadstead [Harbour] here, and the colonists are essentially agricultural. Surf-boats, however, and excellent moorings, provided by the Company, facilitate the landing of passengers and goods. Mount Egmont is distant about fifteen miles.
