FEATURED PHOTO

This photograph is of the Manganui-o-te-Ao River, a tributary of the Whanganui River, around the turn of the 20th century. There are signs of habitation, with planted crops and neat fences. The tents may have belonged to the party of the photographer, F J Denton. This image is one that provokes admiration at its composition, its atmosphere and its technical competence. It tells us a lot about what was happening on and around this cold tributary of the Whanganui River at the turn of the twentieth century and it shows how little the area has changed in comparison to the widespread loss of bush and river pollution in nearby places.
