Port Hutt, Chatham Island, Chatham Islands, taken between June and August 1951 for the National Publicity Studios by E Woollett.

Other - Notes on back of print read: Fishing boats at anchor in Port Hutt. The house in the trees, known as Maromoehu was built about seventy [crossed out and replaced with '85'] years ago by a Mr Papen, who cultivated and farmed the surrounding country. Today the house stands derelict and the land has returned to fern and peat swamp. The same house is illustrated in Simpson's "Chatham Exiles" from a picture in the Dominion Museum showing the house without trees. The trees are now sixty feet high."
