Product Description

A correspondent to the Sydney Morning Herald, 3 December 1872, was surprised by the appearance of Hawkins Hill:

The 'claims' of Hawkins Hill do not at all answer to one's preconceptions of a gold mine, for which perhaps £150,000 [more than the construction cost of Government House, Melbourne] have been paid. A few sheets of bark or of corrugated iron, to keep the rain off, is all that is visible of the far-famed Beyers and Holterman's or Krohmann's. The entire property consists, on an average, of about a hundred feet of space. Claims are as close together as a row of huts in a back street ...

Our Giclee prints are made to order from high resolution digital scans on archival cotton rag papers using pigment inks. They are printed with a white border allowing you to mount and frame as desired. A Library disclaimer is also printed along the bottom edge of the print.

Prints may take up to 21 days to produce and will be sent to you rolled in a sturdy tube.

Sample prints are available to inspect at the Library Shop.
