Captain Flowers and companion

Holding the telescope that symbolises his profession, Captain Flowers poses with an unidentified woman in this photograph, taken in Whanganui in 1878. The woman, who may be from the West Indies, accompanied Flowers to New Zealand. She is an example of the non-Māori intermarriage partners who arrived in New Zealand from this period.
