James Bragge's photo of Wairarapa, 1870s (2 o 5)

James Bragge's photo of Wairarapa, 1870s

Professional photographer James Bragge expertly recorded the transformation of the environment that followed in the wake of 19th-century colonisation. His photograph of the Wairarapa plain from the Rimutaka Range, taken some time in the 1870s, shows a partially denuded hillside framed by ragged trees in the foreground. The Rimutaka road curves through the valley like a river.
