It features ‘The Gun-boat Pioneer At Anchor Off Meremere, On The Waikato River, Reconnoitring The Native Position Saturday, January 30, 1864’. A number of artists living and working in New Zealand at the time would act as correspondants for Newspapers in Britain and would supply drawings and paintings of important events that would then be turned into engravings for publication.
