More Info →Bush fellers and camp site, Wairarapa

Bushfellers at their tent site in the forest. The photographs in this collection are thought to have been taken in the Forty Mile Bush area of Wairarapa, at Kaiparoro near Mount Bruce. The area was largely settled by Scandinavians who came to Wairarapa in the 1870s to clear the bush. The album from which they come has been identified as relating to Alfred and Eliza Falkner. See 2010N_Eke3_3512 for the same camp site.
