1841 Melbourne Panoramic Drawing


PLEASE NOTE: The dimensions of these prints may require special framing.

One of the earliest panoramic drawings of Melbourne as it appeared in 1841. This 3-part image was engraved by Alfred Martin Ebsworth in 1889, and was published in the Supplement to "The Australasian Sketcher," April 18, 1889. Samuel Jackson (1807-76), architect of the first Scots' Church also made a panoramic pencil drawing from its walls, then under construction in 1841.

If you order this product, you will receive all three images printed in one sheet, similar to how the images are displayed under this description.

Notes from the State Library state that this is a "View across Collins-street (between Russell and Swanston streets), looking towards the Yarra and Hobson's Bay -- View down Collins-street to the summit of the rise at William-street, Little Collins-street showing on the right -- View of the City westwards and northwards towards Flagstaff-Hill. Swanston-street beyond buildings in foreground and Elizabeth-street in middle distance."
