  2. I would hazard a guess it’s Patio Bay, Ponui in the distance. Woolcotts bach behind? Whoever the folk they seem to be pretty relaxed…and obviously thirsty.

  3. Pretty damn good, WW followers! It’s Henry Winkelmann c1900 all right, with his trademark straw hat. So Nath (@6.39) Rod (@7.18) and Michael (@9.13) were spot on. The other guys were members of the crew of AORERE.
    It’s indeed on Waiheke but not the various places suggested. Any other guesses for that prize?

  4. Yes definitely Henry Winkelmann on left,early 1900’s after he left his job as secretary of the Coastal Steamship Company to concentrate on his photography full time.

  5. I’d hazard a guess at Patio Bay,1893/94, Henry Winkelmann on left. Don’t know the others but could be relatives of Bert Woolcott
