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.

Carte-de-visite of the bust of Lieutenant Colonel Fiennes Colvile. Colvile is wearing a suit and is looking toward the right. There is some discrepency regarding the spelling of the name of Lieutenant Colville. He is recorded on the file cards as having the name Fiennes Middleton Colville. The original carte-de-visite spells Colville without the 'e' and refers to him as "A. Colvill". Books written about the Land Wars include a Lieutenant Colonel Colville of the 43rd regiment, the regiment which both the original and the file cards mention

Carte-de-visite of the bust of Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Butler of the 57th Regiment. Butler is wearing his military uniform including his medals. He is facing the left side of the image.

Accession No

Carte-de-visite of the bust of Lieutenant Wyndham Thompson of the 57th Regiment. Thompson is dressed in military uniform and he is facing toward the camera. There is some discrepency over Thompson's rank: File cards record Thompson as a Captain but the original records him as a Lieutenant. It is more than likely that Thompson received the rank of captain later in the wars.
