Mundy album 2

Mundy album 2
[Between 1860 and 1870]
Mundy, Daniel Louis, 1826-1881

Photographs taken by Daniel Mundy in the 1860s. All but one were taken in the South Island. Captions hand-written by Mundy on verso of each page. (Information from handwriting and signature `D.L.M.' in Mundy Album III, p 51).

The North Island view was taken in Napier, and shows a two-storeyed house with quoinings, a horse-drawn coach outside, and to the right there is a wooden church.

South Island views include many landscapes; hotels; the Christchurch government buildings, the Victoria Bridge, High Street and Cashel Street; and three sheep stations. Two are well-known, Benmore Station and Gramere Station (then known as Hawden's Station [i.e. Hawdon's Station]. The third is possibly that of George Gilbert Suman [the hand-written description appears to be `Sumans Station' at German Bay, and according to Wise's Post Office Directory, William Gilbert Suman lived in German Bay in 1875).

There are three photographs showing Daniel Mundy's travelling darkroom (p 13, 25, and page 43)

Quantity: 1 album(s).
