More Info →Monrad farm at Karere

The property of Bishop Monrad, former Prime Minister of Denmark and family. Translated from Danish on rear of photograph, written by Olga Monrad, daughter in law of Bishop Monrad: “The lake, called lagoon. The garden fence is visible to the right. The canoe in the foreground, the board doesn’t belong. The Maoris squat. Ditlev is quite good at keeping his balance, getting on board and sitting still, it is a pity that he is not sitting on the empty board”. Ditlev was the first child of Viggo and Olga Monrad, and was born in Wanganui in 1866.
