Copy photograph of a studio portrait of Catherine Garland Riemenschneider (nee Woon), wife of the Reverend Johann Friedrich Riemenschneider, aged approximately 26 years old. She is seated at a table covered with a patterned table cloth. She is wearing a long sleeved gown, ornamental brooch at the throat, and hair fastened at the nape of her neck. The studio props in the photograph appear to be the same as those featured in the ambrotype portrait of her husband, Johann Friedrich Riemenschneider (A82.030). Peter Oettli's book "God's Messenger: J. F. Riemenschneider and Racial Conflict in 19th Century New Zealand" makes reference to Riemenschneider and his wife getting their photographs taken in New Plymouth in the summer of 1859. It seems likely this photograph is a copy of the original ambrotype portrait taken at the same time as Reverend Riemenschneider's ambrotype, which may have been taken by Hartley Webster.

Name/Title
Hand tinted ambrotype portrait of Mrs Walter Morrison, wife of Walter John Morrison. Mrs Morrison is seated and has one arm resting on a table covered with a patterned table cloth. A vase of flowers also rests on the table. She is wearing a dress with a shawl, a bonnet tied in a large bow underneath her chin and gloves. The majority of the image is hand tinted. The portrait is framed by a gold metal matt and is contained in a plain maroon leather case with no lid. Designs in gold paint decorate the edge of the case. Two hook clasps are mounted on the left hand side of the case. The table cloth and chair that feature in this photograph are very similar to those pictured in the ambrotype portrait of the Reverend Johann Friedrich Riemenschneider (A82.030), which was taken in New Plymouth in the summer of 1859, presumably by Hartley Webster. It is possible this ambrotype was also taken by Hartley Webster at a similar time.
