Five albumen print photographs laid down on contemporary board with surrounding border; the panorama 250 x 1550 mm (individual panels being 250 x 310 mm). The photographs making up this large scale panorama were evidently taken very close to the Holtermann tower overlooking Lavender Bay, the vantage point from which Bernard Holtermann and Charles Bayliss photographed panoramas of Sydney in 1875. The present panorama does not have quite the same elevation, but the perspective is very similar. The first panel shows Lavender Bay, with St. Leonard’s School at far left; the second panel shows McMahon’s Point in the foreground and looks over to Dawes Point in the distance; the third panel overlooks Blues Point, with Darling Harbour across the water; and Goat Island straddles the join between the third and fourth panels. A panorama of Sydney Harbour from North Sydney attributed to Robinson and dated to 1876 is held in the collection of the State Library of NSW. The present panorama appears to have been taken from a position adjacent to the SLNSW panorama, but on the farther side of Blues Point Road and slightly closer to Lavender Bay. $1,000–1,250 ❖ 400 Aboriginal and Afghan Camel Train group of twelve 19th century, silver gelatin and albumen prints, mostly laid down on card showing scenes of the South Australian outback, Aboriginals, camel trains and Afghan drivers, one captioned verso “Serving Rations To Blacks Oodnadatta 688 Miles North of Adelaide” each card numbered upper right and signed “E.
