A photo taken above Waikanae on 3 April 1965 looking east towards the Tararua Range. Te Moana Road is on the left while Ngaio Road is roughly in the centre. This ends in a tract of native bush, as it still does today, albeit smaller than it was. Next to it on the right, Kohekohe Street leads into Ngarara Road horizontally across the photo near the bottom.
State Highway One and the main trunk railway line are discernible across the centre of the photo.
