Photograph was taken on the Mahurangi River at Warkworth, north of Auckland, New Zealand.
The foremost vessel is the old S.S.Kapunui, a restored timber steam tug and now converted to a passenger carrying vessel. It is believed to have been built by Charles Thompson in 1929. The next vessel is the little river steamer ’ Zeltic ’ and last but not least is the sailing scow ‘Jane Gifford.’ These scows moved every conceivable comodity around New Zealand from the late 1800’s to the early 1960’s and I can still remember at least three working in the 1980’s.
The Mahurangi River is prone to flooding as can be seen by the length of the piles which support the pontoon wharf.
