The swing bridge in Hobson Street is also shown part-way along Hobson Street on the left. Katherine Mansfield's birthplace is also in the view, two houses to the left of the swing bridge. Molesworth Street is shown running in a straight line towards the Government Buildings on the right.
Other Titles - Lithographed. Charles Edward Bruges Hammond
Extended Title - From the New Zealand Graphic Christmas number 1894
Possibly after a watercolour by Charles Edward Hammond, rather than from a photograph. Hammond's sketchbook, vol 3, in State Library of Victoria, includes a watercolour of this view, and Hammond writes about drawing the view in December 1893
