Heaphy, Charles, 1820-1881 :View in the valley of the Nairne Port Wakefield in the distance. [June, 1840]
Shows the Nairn River winding between bush-clad banks away to the harbour of Port Wakefield (Waitangi, Chatham Island). There are ships in the distance, and the whole is framed by foreground trees, including tree ferns.
Shows the area known as Maungatukarewa.
Another copy of this, approximately half-size, is held in the State Archives of Hamburg, along with a lithograph of the view. The watercolour was probably copied by Heaphy and was supplied to a group of Hamburg merchants who were interested in buying the Chatham Islands from the New Zealand Company and establishing a colony there.
Reproduced as a Turnbull Print, 1964.
