A road in the left foreground, probably Ohiro Road, with bush, open fields and scattered houses on a sloping area, with dense housing and businesses on the flat shore area in the distance. The road running across the centre of the view into the housing on the left is probably Willis Street. The view looks north across the harbour towards the Hutt Valley. Several sailing ships and smaller boats are in the harbour. By same hand as A-113-010 [River flat and homestead, ca 1860] Originally catalogued as by an artist with surname Capot, on the grounds that a series of squiggles on the right side of the road in the left foreground could read "Capot" when turned upside-down. However, the marks are more likely to be intended to represent pebbles on the road. Other Titles - Capot [?] [Wellington from the Brooklyn Hills, ca 1860] Quantity: 1 watercolour(s).
