‘Port Nicholson from the hills above Pitone in 1840’ (3 o 3)

‘Port Nicholson from the hills above Pitone in 1840’

Wellington was the third New Zealand Company settlement. This lithograph from a drawing by Charles Heaphy, looking from the Hutt hills towards Matiu (Somes Island), suggested to prospective settlers that Wellington had plenty of flat land around its harbour. This time the added bucolic touches included a farm worker and some pigs in the foreground.
