Description
Showing a large crowd, including scouts in the foreground, around a statue of Captain Robert Falcon Scott, the Antarctic explorer, on the banks of the Avon River in Christchurch. The Governor, Lord Liverpool, pulls a Union Jack flag from the statue, which had been designed by Lady Scott and carved from Carrara marble, watched by other dignitaries including a clergyman. Scott's ill fated expedition had its base at Lyttelton.
