  • General note

    The drawing is very similar to, and may be the original watercolour drawing for, Lycett's published plate, "Distant view of Sydney, from the Light House ..." in his "Views in Australia ... London, 1824 (M.L. ref. F980.1/L, pl.3). The most significant difference is that Fort Macquarie is depicted as completed in the published view whilst only half-built in the drawing.
