About this object
View of a valley near Tarawera, Hawke's Bay, taken in September 1896. A river or stream is located at the bottom of the valley on the right side of the photograph. This waterway is possibly the Waipunga River. A road is located to the left of the waterway. Hills rise steeply away from the road on the left side of the photograph. A note in the album in which the photograph has been mounted identifies the scene as representing The Nunnery, Tarawera, Hawke's Bay. The Nunnery possibly refers to Nunnery Bush.
