Description

Margin in ink: T.M. Hocken; label in ink in Dr Hocken’s hand: The North Shore is now connected with Auckland by a frequent steam service. Lake Takapuna is one of the most picturesque spots near Auckland. The Maoris had a tradition that it was unfathomable & that it was a vacuum caused by a disgorging from the regions below of the triple peaked Rangitoto; label: Na Te Hakena Tenei Tiki.
