1880 Perspective of Melbourne


A very detailed perspective image of Melbourne in 1880. Another very impressive piece of art from Arthur Cooke, depicting the city looking south from over the Exhibition Building. Compare this to another work of the same artist, where he looks in the opposite direction from over South Melbourne here.
