Description
Looking from King's Wharf across the eastern reclamation area of Auckland's waterfront. Roofs of the wharf buildings are seen to the right of the picture, with cranes, a tall chimney and other buildings visible along the shore. A string of barges forming a breakwater stretches out to two small moored ships with the area to be reclaimed visible behind. Mount Eden can be seen on the skyline. Further details of plans for reclamation are given at the bottom of the page.
