The Devil’s Elbow is a particularly winding and hilly section of State Highway 2 between Whirinaki and Tūtira. This 1905 photograph shows a group of travellers crossing a stream at the bottom of the elbow. This section of road has been straightened in some places but still requires a slow approach and liberal use of brakes.
