Description
A collage of images showing a variety of river views in the North and South Islands. The images are numbered: 1. Mokau River, Taranaki; 2. Waikato River, Atiamuri, with overhanging willow trend a pine wind break; 3. upper reaches of the Wanganui River; 4 Maramarua River, a tributary of the Waikato; 5. Rakaia River, Canterbury; 6. glimpse of the Waipa River in the Waikato, with two boats midstream and possibly a dairy factory on the far bank; 7. Arnold River near Lake Brunner; 8. Waikato River near Atiamuri; 9. Arthur River, Otago, where good trout fishing can be had. The scenes are overlaid with images of a fisherman with a rod over his shoulder, a net in his left hand and a catch of trout between his legs, and a boy shouldering an oar.
