SCARCE NEW ZEALAND MAORI 19TH CENTURY ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH MOUNTED TO CARD.

THE MEETING HOUSE /TRIBE NEEDS RESEARCH AS THE HOUSE IS NOT IDENTIFIED :

There appears to be some writing to the bottom right side of the photo but I can not decipher.

It shows an  elderly Maori couple to the left with a Man standing to centre by window, a dog is to the front as well.

The carvings are quite clear so would be able to be link the house ,is this perhaps a Wanganui river Whare.?

The photo with the card mount measures 228mm x 168mm approx.

Some edges and corner wear/ some age and some fade.
