‘White Terrace, hot springs’ 1882 | In collections
Album created by Stereoscopic Society of New Zealand
A series of images of the Pink and White Terraces that were once located near Rotorua New Zealand. The terraces were completely destroyed by the eruption of Mount Tarawera in 1886.
The Pink and the White Terrace springs were separated by 1.2km, on the shores of lake Rotomahana. A larger lake was formed after the eruption covering/destroying the terraces.
We've cleaned up the original black and white photos and added colour to some of them. Some of these images are from stereoscopic originals and others have been converted to 3D.
