ca. 1870. Four oblong folio album leaves pp. The five mounted watercolours each ca. 16 x 29cm (6.5 x 11.5in.) or slightly smaller, with pencil captions on mounts. Mounts with a couple of minor marginal tears, but otherwise a very good collection.
An attractive collection of scenic watercolours of colonial Australia. The Botany Bay (Sydney) view shows the bay with a steamship moored at a pier. The Lake Midgeon view shows a homestead in the background with a lake (Midgeon) and a bridge in the foreground. Today Lake Midgeon has dried up and is now Mejum Swamp. The first Tamar River view shows a steam and sail ship while the second view is purely a river view.
