Devon Street, New Plymouth
Early view of Devon Street, New Plymouth. Shops line either side of the street. Signs on some of these shops identifiy Uncle Tom's Wardrobe, W. R. King and Son and a tailor and draper business. There are several men standing on the corner of Devon and Brougham Streets on the left hand side of the photograph. The ornate street light on this same corner advertises Cottier's Masonic Hotel (just out of the frame). There people gathered around two two horse-drawn carriages, one on either side of the street. Some horses are visible further up the street. A sign on the right hand side of the street reads "Crossing" and marks the end of the railway line at this time.
