Entitled – Dunedin. From Maitland Street. 

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Dunedin. – This town is acknowledged by travellers who have visited it to be one of the most romantically situated places in the world.

Nestling by the side of a calm, lake-like bay, it is built upon tiers of terraces, which rise upward towards the hilly belt that skirts the city.

In other words, Dunedin may be described as lying at the head of an estuary running inland from Port Chalmers.

Formerly, steamers of large size could not come further than the latter port, but now, owing to improved harbour arrangements and extensive dredging operations, nearly all vessels go right up to Dunedin.

This is admittedly the finest built city in New Zealand, and takes high rank in commercial importance.

The place is surrounded by a recreation reserve called the Town Belt, a walk round which will enable the tourist to obtain a most excellent view of the town and its pretty suburbs, and the surrounding country.

Dunedin is sufficiently advanced to have omnibuses, cabs, and horse and cable tramways.

As in most of the important cities of New Zealand, there is a museum here; also an art gallery, adjoining the museum in Great King Street.

Between Rattrey Street and Mornington, too, there is the inevitable Victoria Park.

The principal excursions from Dunedin are to Ocean Beach and St. Clair, Taieri Beach, Blueskin and the Peninsula, and Nichol’s Creek Waterfall and Leith Valley.

A trip to the last-named sequestered dell is really most enjoyable, the distance being but five miles from the city, and half the way being covered by tram.

During the summer months special conveyances leave the Triangle for the Falls at irregular intervals throughout the day.

The traveller may also take a tram-car to the very gates of the Botanical Gardens; or he may inspect with interest the monuments to the early settlers in the Northern and Southern Cemeteries.

If you buy an item and then see it relisted this is because we occasionally have more than one available, each page is original and not a photocopy.
