View looking at the covered verandah and front entrance relating to the General (Supply) Store in the Northland settlement of Opononi. In sight here, on a fine sunny day, are an unattended bicycle (in the foreground and on the verandah) and a line of metal cannisters and containers - the store seen here is operated by the Andrewes family (hence the sign above the verandah that reads AS Andrewes & Sons).
