These negatives were pulled from the McKnight Collection in the Ian Matheson City Archives, though their relation to the collection is unknown.
They have been damaged through poor storage - words can be seen on the negatives, presumably from being kept between the pages in a book.
The building in the first image is Greytown Hospital. One figure, Sergeant Cunningham, appears in all of the images of people. The last negative in the set is labelled "Tauherenikau staff" - probably referring to the medical facilities in Tauherenikau camp, part of Featherston Military Camp.
