  • General note

    The drawing is pasted onto a sheet, the edges of which are painted to emulate a coloured mount.
    The drawing is similar to another smaller watercolour in the Dixson Galleries collection (DG V1/78) and to another in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Library, London (see copy at FM2/1534). All are similar to the published plate, "Sydney, the capital of New South Wales" in Lycett's "Views in Australia ...", London, 1824 (M.L. ref. F980.1/L, pl.2). The Mitchell Library and the London copy however, do not include the spire of St James' Church.
