Plot Part one of this reel is of the beautiful city of Auckland and its environs. Panoramic views of Auckland: a characteristic New Zealand ferryboat bringing business people from the suburb of Takapuna to Auckland; striking Waterside workers on parade: picturesque Albert park; Grafton Bridge, the longest single concrete arch in the world: and the Kauri log industry. Part two is of a New Zealand ostrich farm. A baby ostrich: hooding the ostriches to pluck their feathers, a method employed because the ostrich, ordinarily a wild, nervous bird, becomes as tame as a house cat when its sight is obstructed. Part three is of a present day Maori village, Paranuul. A typical dwelling, showing the crude native inventions supposed to aid comfort and health: a homemade water hoist. Part four is of Wellington, the great seaport of New Zealand, where the great products of the country are transferred for shipment to all parts of the world. Methods of loading and unloading flax and tallow into and from the holds of great steamships by the use of hydraulic cranes are shown in actual operation.... search for A Trip Through the 'North Island' of New Zealand, from Auckland to Wellington on IMDb
