Object Detail

Bell Block Stockade in middle ground with a solitary soldier in red uniform standing guard to the right of the main building. Mount Taranaki/Egmont and ranges are visible in the background. The painting is inscribed with the date 1858 but the Bell Block Stockade was not constructed until 1860. The painting also only depicts the Bell Block blockhouse, thus must have been painted before the stockade was constructed around the blockhouse.
