Brisbane River from Bowen Terrace to Parliament House.
Reproduction from a hand-coloured steel engraving drawn and engraved (from a photograph), by prominent English topographical artist James Charles Armytage (1802-97) for Australia Illustrated published in London c.1872.

Brisbane view from the New Farm end of Bowen Terrace, across Kangaroo Point, Brisbane River and the Botanic Gardens, to the newly completed Parliament House building (opened in 1868).
The photograph was most likely taken in Brisbane in 1869-70, and provided to Armytage by Richard Daintree, Agent-General for Queensland in London from 1872. Main Street was the only road in Kangaroo Point, and the sawmills and engineering works had not yet been constructed there.
