Product Description

Quiet during the day, the city could change at night. A report in the Sydney Morning Herald, 7 June 1873, of the arrest of several sailors seems remarkably restrained:

A 'difficulty' arose yesterday evening in Hunter Street, between some sailors belonging to H.M.S. Blanche and the police. One of the city constables received a blow on the head which drove the colour from his cheeks, whereupon he drew his baton and defended himself with much judgment and moderation.

A gas lamp stood outside the original 1856 Sydney Morning Herald offices to the left, on the corner of O'Connell, Hunter and Pitt streets. Further up Hunter Street, past the blur of a horse-drawn vehicle, can be seen the twin towers of the Iron Church, at the intersection of Hunter and Macquarie streets, now the site of the State Library of NSW.

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.
