"Capt. J. Gwynneth Bay of Plenty Vols."
Copy of an original portrait of Captain John Gwynneth of the Bay of Plenty Volunteer Cavalry. Gwynneth appears standing, facing toward his right, dressed in militiary officer uniform. He wears a peaked pillbox cap (with light-toned ring), an undress coat with toggles and olivettes and light-toned cuffs, trousers with a light-toned seam stripe, and a sword attached to his left side. On his left breast he wears a medal. Gwynneth has a large, light-toned beard and moustache. In his left hand he holds his gloves. Gwynneth stands on a pattenerned studio floor. Behind him on the right side of the photograph, there is a partially visible table, behind which drapes a studio curtain. The studio wall skirting board is visible in the background. The photograph is included on page 54 of William Francis Robert Gordon's album "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected Herewith".
