Sydney Cove 1836

Sydney Cove 1836 (65w x 60h cm) - $1800

The early colonists had certainly beavered away at it by 1836; a network of streets and wharves filled up the land around what is now Circular Quay. I was drawn to the particular references to the water depths near The Rocks and across to the Fort where the Opera House now stands, soundings are in fathoms of course!
