These Photos show the legitimate way Bolton used a camera to deduce the position of the ferry in relation to Browns Island & its Light.
Once the position of the ferry was determined as demonstrated in the previous post with the bearing from Sky tower which becomes a transit, fixed between Browns Island & its light, intersected by the ferry’s said course of 286*, a photo was taken showing the coast line from Browns Island to the Takapuna shore.
It is clearly seen now that Browns Island is just off the left side of the original Photo 1 & the framework of the wheelhouse window is obscuring the Light with North Head in the background.
These disclosures bring severe criticism from B Young later in the trial as not being acceptable but as the Judge was unfamiliar with this area & nautical matters in particular Bolton held that this revelation would be useful to the Court.
Browns Island is deduced to be off the left side of Photo 1 & the Light is therefore being obsured by the vertical frame or window post. Classique is seen close to where a course of 286*T would head towards
This photo was taken from the position the ferry would’ve been on at Photo 1. Browns Island is clearly seen to be just off the left side of Photo 1 & the Light is obviously covered by the wheelhouse framework. North Head is in the background.
