    Photographers include: Samuel Clifford (nos. 19,21,22,30) identified from Tasamanian Images database, State Library of Tasmania, July 2002 and Tasmanian scenes / S. Clifford photographer (Mitchell Library PXA 503). The wide angle panoramic views ca. 1865, in the Sydney series, were probably taken by Freeman Brothers or Victor Prout (identified from other Freeman Bros. & Prout panoramas in the Pictures Collection, Mitchell Library).
