  • General note

    A rough pencil sketch on reverse shows same view without foreground figures
    Sketch on reverse is untitled, unsigned and undated
    Title from original mount. Remounted 1990
    DG V*/Sp Coll/Rae/1 with DG SV*/Sp Coll/Rae/16-20 form a panorama
    Although signature and date appear to be genuine, dating is in doubt as the Australian Museum is shown in this panorama with the roof frame being completed, an event which occurred in 1849. Another painting in the series, DG SV*/Sp Coll/Rae/10, shows a building not completed until 1845. The pictures may have been signed between 1891, when a photographic edition of the unsigned views was first published, and 1900 when Rae died.
