Description

Many, but probably not all, of these photographs were taken by William Henshaw Clarke. Henshaw started up his studio in Wellington in 1877 but then opened one in Wanganui in 1890, so it is possible that the photographs taken between those dates (while he was working in Wellington) may have been taken by him.
