Description

From the site of modern New Plymouth, looking past the mouth of the Huatoki Stream south along the beach line towards the Sugarloaf Islands and Paritutu. In the foreground is a group of Maori with a bullock dray being urged along, a man with a pig leg-roped and several other groups, including two men who appear to be performing a haka. Further along the beach, a boat is landing, close to several canoes, there are one or two European houses and a large flagpole for signalling. The small stone cottage with pointed gable closest to Paritutu on the left belonged to C. W. Richmond and his wife Emily Elizabeth Richmond. Strutt has used parts of this drawing as the basis for his oil 'On the beach, Onehunga, 1856'

The Richmond's stone cottage is still standing, next to New Plymouth Public Library.

Quantity: 1 watercolour(s).
