Caption

 A new view of the Arthur's Pass road from a point about half a mile above the Canterbury end of the Otira Tunnel. Before the completion of the railway the road was used by the coaches which were the connecting link between the rail heads. It is now traversed chiefly by motorists travelling betwteen Canterbury and Westland and holiday makers who prefer the walk over Arthur's Pass and through the Otira gorge to the railway journey through the tunnel.
