Cave Rock, Port Lyttelton, New Zealand, 1864

Cave Rock, Port Lyttelton, New Zealand, 1864. 'The picturesque scenery of the cliffs on each side of the entrance to the harbour of Lyttelton, in the Canterbury Province of New Zealand, is well illustrated by a View of Cave Rock, which we have engraved after a photograph taken by Mr. James Elsbee, photographic artist, of Christchurch. The port and town of Lyttelton are distant but ten miles from Christchurch, the capital, of the province, and will shortly be connected with it by a railway, the first portion of which is already open for traffic. The construction of a tunnel through the steep range of hills by which the head of this harbour is inclosed has necessarily delayed the completion of this line of railway, the only undertaking of its kind in New Zealand'.
