[ca 1910]

View of children at Hall's Beach. Two girls are sitting on the trunk of an old tree (pohutukawa?) that has fallen over and is growing across the sand. Four boys are standing at the water's edge looking back towards the tree. Standing in the shade of the tree are two small children with a girl and dog. In the distance is Northcote Wharf and Auckland city. A ferry with smoke rising from its funnel has just left the wharf. Taken ca 1910 by William A Price.
