About this object
The glass plate negative shows Bluff Hill, Napier, in the background. A railway line travels along the length of the Napier Breakwater, which was a barrier built out into the sea to protect the coast and harbour from the force of waves. A railway trolley can be seen in the foreground and in the distance is a crane. In Album 27 there is a contact print taken from the glass plate negative. Underneath the photograph is written: Napier Breakwater.
