  • General note

    Although the title dates the image to 1868, the date 1869 appears on the mount as the last year of D. R. Hawley's tenure as Librarian which infers that the image and the mount were not completed until at least 1869.
    The photograph on which this image was based is at ML MSS 6648: you can navigate to its record through the related works field
    E. Hawley is possibly related to the Australian Library and Literary Institution's principal Librarian, Dr Richard Hawley
