  • Sold

Albumen print photograph, 140 x 200 mm; no photographer’s imprint; verso with contemporary inscription in pencil: ‘185. Sydney Harbour from North Shore’; in very good condition (unmounted).

The AGNSW (Accession number 273.2011) holds in its collection an almost identical view, taken a few years earlier by Charles Bayliss from his patron Bernard Holtermann’s residence (now part of Shore School), titled Lower North Shore, Sydney Harbour from Holtermann tower, 1881. The view looks across Lavender Bay towards Milson’s Point and what would later become the site of Luna Park, with McMahon’s Point stretching down to the harbour on the right.
