Product Description

This is Edward McGaurr's sawpit in Medley Street, which supplied timber for the town. As the Sydney Morning Herald, 10 October 1872, noted:
In a week, as if by magic, stores, inns, theatres, shops, butcheries and bakeries - all the trading component parts of a large town arose; claims were marked out; windlasses swung; sawyers, splitters, labourers of all kinds, thronged the ground, and in a wonderfully short time many claims were 'on the gold', and 'all went merry as a marriage bell'

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.
