About this object
View of a house on Milton Road, Napier, thought to have been taken in 1901.

The cottage is of timber construction. The cottage features a hipped roof clad in corrugated iron. The front façade features a centrally placed door with a single window on either side. A path leads up to the front door of the house. Gardens containing flowers and shrubs have been planted on either side of the path. The land rises steeply at the back of the property.

Two women and two children pose for the photograph in front of the house. The woman in black who is seated at the centre of the photograph is identified on the back of the photograph as Mrs T J Steel. The younger woman standing on her right is identified as Mrs A Baker, née Miss Elizabeth Steel. The children are thought to be James and Maude Baker.

Photographer, L Daroux.
