Crowd of Maori and Pakeha gathered for the tangi of Tawhiao at Parawera. Photographs taken September 1894 by Enos Pegler.

King Tawhiao died 26 August 1894 at Parawera. He was buried at Taupiri after a tangi in September. On 24 September the tangi was open to pakeha visitors. The photographs were taken that day with a "Facile" camera.

The Maori chiefs have set apart Monday next to receive and welcome European visitors in connection with the tangi being held over Tawhiao's death, Mr. Hudson, manager of district railways, has arranged for a special train to leave Auckland at eight a.m., stopping where required up to Otahuhu, reaching Taupiri at half-past eleven, returning from Taupiri at quarter past five p.m., stopping where required to put down passengers, and reaching Auckland at half-past eight. A special car will be reserved for ladies. It is expected that a considerable number of our citizens will be present on this interesting occasion, as such a gathering of natives, and a tangi on so large a scale is not likely to be seen again in New Zealand. The return fare from Auckland is 13s; from either stations the usual second-class return fare irrespective of class.

Mr E. S. Pegler photographer of Onehunga, announces the opening of his new art studio tomorrow (Wednesday). He promises that the first half-dozen babies of 18 months old and under brought to the studio will be photographed separately, and free portraits handed to the mothers. The English ."Review of Reviews" says:- "E. S. Pegler, of Onehunga, Auckland, New Zealand, only seems to have one hunger, which is to obtain a comparison between his work and that of others. The photos we have seen, taken by the above gentleman are decidedly interesting, and all display capital work."

Bill Whittaker has joined the ranks of the kodakists. Last Monday he went out to Onehunga to get some instructions from Mr E. S. Pegler, the genial photographer of that place, who is always graciously ready and willing to initiate beginners into the mysteries of the black art. After some preliminary instructions in the dark room with regard to the fixing of plates, etc., and a shot or two in front of the studio, Mr Pegler advised our amateur to ramble along the streets and do a bit of snapshotting on his own account his parting injunction being get something moving if you can. Bill was back at the studio in half an hour to report that the only things he saw moving in Onehunga since he left were a lot of ducks and a cow's tail, and that he had shot both. Mr Pegler pronounced the ducks excellent, but the cow-picture had one defect. A cutter riding at anchor a quarter-of-a-mile off seemed to be resting on the cow's back, as clobb fitting as a howdah on an elephant's. Mr Pegler informed the kodakist that in order to preserve a just perspective, he may find it necessary to frequently change his position, but Bill declares that once his view finder is fixed, the cow or the cutter may move, but he's bothered if he will.
