Object Detail

A group of Māori and Pākēha are gathered before a raupō/reed building with a canvas awning protecting two scribes at a table. In front of the house is a man (Spain) speaking to those assembled. Mt Taranaki/Egmont and a scattering of other houses are visible in the background. The Pākēha in the top hat with accompanying child (mid right foreground has been identified by grandson, W.H. Skinner?) as John Veale.
