Genuine antique

1875

Description:

Scarce colonial engraving of Manawatu Gorge, New Zealand.

The gorge is significant because unlike most gorges, the Manawatu River is a water gap, that is it runs directly through the surrounding ranges from one side to the other. This was caused by the ranges moving upwards at the same time as the gorge was eroded by the river, instead of the more usual erosion of an already existing range.

From the original edition of the Australasian Sketcher.
