View of Friendly Bay and harbour, 1933. The photograph might have been taken in April 1932. If this is confirmed, then the Uk freighter Gallic is moored at Holmes Wharf and the minesweeper HMS Wakakura is berthed alongside Sumpter Wharf. The ships beyond the breakwater (in the roadstead) may be the Shaw Savill (UK) freighter Raranga waiting to berth at Holmes Wharf, with the Karetu to the left of the photograph. If the second vessel is not the Karetu, it may be the Wainui or Waitaki; but this is less likely.
