"Messrs Grant and Fogwill's camp"
View of Grant and Fogwill's camp, which was close to where Fox's party set up camp before their ascent of Mount Taranaki in February 1890. Ten figures are depicted, including a woman holding a parisol. Three tents are strung up between trees. Fires are burning in the foreground. Mount Taranaki dominates the background. The sky has a pink hue, suggesting sunset. Part of a series of works by Edith Halcombe documenting Sir William Fox's climb up Mt Taranaki in February 1890. Members of the party included: Premier Sir William Fox; Mayor of New Plymouth Arthur Standish; Edith Halcombe; Miss Standish; Miss Saddler; Guide Harry Peters and Robert Clinton Hughes.
