This page from the London Illustrated News includes two engraved scenes focussed on the ‘War in New Zealand’. It features ‘Scene of the Waikato, near its Junction with the Waipa River’ and ‘The Queen's Redoubt, On the Waikato, the Head-Quarters of Lieutenant- General Cameron’. 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.
