Description

Shows railway workers, one identified as Thomas Alexander Evans, at a construction camp with shacks, tents, food supplies, clothes on a clothes line and domestic articles outside in a clearing among tall trees.

Text beneath states: "Our picture shows a phase of the magnificent scenery which is to be met with along the route of the North island Main Trunk Railway, which links up the Cities of Auckland and Wellington, and is now practically completed. The numberless beautiful views and the impressive grandeur of many of the sights adjacent to the line should make one of the most popular routes for tourists in New Zealand, and the only thing to be regretted is that scenes such as that depicted above must vanish within a short space before the steady advance of the sturdy pioneer settler".
