Rudolf Berking Arrival Motuihe


Rudolf Berking waves a finger in greeting to the photographer as his belongings and those of other new arrivals are unloaded at the wharf on Motuihe Island on 22 May 1916. Karl Bunge in the white hat appears to be helping. George Lober (dark hat on right) watches on.
