This A4 print of Victorian Oamaru is from a photo of the lithograph by W. Potts, produced originally by A.D. Willis of Wanganui (Photo by E Wheeler & Son).

This scene is drawn from somewhere on the hill now known as Warren Reserve, looking across the town to the harbour and Cape Wanbrow.

Willis was born in England in 1842 and arrived here in NZ in 1857. He was a commercial printer whose firm specialised in lithography. In 1881 he brought William Potts (1859 -1947) to New Zealand, who was to remain in his employ for over 20 years.

A great gift for an Oamaruvian living overseas - easy to post.
