Noyce, E :[Embarking for home / E. Noyce. 68 Basinghall Street, London?, Bauerricher & Co, Between 1852 and 1860]
Beach scene in New Zealand, with a sailing ship near the shore, surrounded by rowing boats. Settlers on shore, either arriving or departing, one with a pick for goldmining, others with baggage, many waving at the ship, other groups in the background rushing to greet the arrival or departure. A Maori man and woman to the right identify this as a New Zealand scene.
At least two others in the set of six views to which this belongs are clearly Australian scenes, one at the Mount Alexander diggings, Victoria and one showing a colourful Australian parrot. Despite the title assigned to this view, it is possible that the scene is of an immigrant ship arriving and being met by other settlers, rather than of a ship embarking for England. It is also possible that the English publishers of this series have confused Australia and New Zealand.
