View of Te Kuiti from Awakino Road behind the meeting house
[Between 1908 and 1912]

General view of Te Kuiti taken from Awakino Road behind the meeting house. The business premises of Lorigan & Co. (land agents) are visible centre right; the railway station is seen centre left. Photograph taken by William Archer Price.

Source of descriptive information - Note on back of file print reads "Te Kuiti 1903 fom behind the meeting house (Info. from Te Tokanganui-a-noho. centennial Programme 1872-1972, p. 45). However, comparing the image in this book with the image being described, at 1/2-000675, it is apparent that Price's photograph was taken later. This can be seen from the growth of trees behind a house in the centre foreground, and from more buildings having been built along the main road in Te Kuiti. Price's image is nearer in date to one taken in 1908 which is seen in "Te Kuiti illustrated, pictorial record 1883-1914" (Turnbull Library, PBox 919.31 TEK 1914, p 17)
