View of Pipitewai Bay in Awaawaroa Bay, Waiheke Island
[ca 1920]

View of Pipitewai Bay taken from a high vantage point overlooking the beach. There is a large wooden dwelling close to the foreshore (possibly the Awaawaroa Guesthouse, and/or the Gordon family homestead) as well as two holiday cottages. People can be seen sitting on the verandah of the guesthouse, and also on the beach side of the white picket fence which separates the house from the beach. A large wooden building is in the foreground, possibly a woolshed. Photographed by William Archer Price in early 1900s.
