Port Stanley, 1870 - 1900

Port Stanley

Scope and Contents

A 210 x 140 mm watercolour of Port Stanley looking east-north-east along the channel, with ships at anchor in the harbour, a few warehouses along the shore, and houses behind them on higher ground. There are two field guns, shielded behind an earth bank in the foreground, protecting the settlement.

The initials G.M.H., just below the painting, are those of Georgena Maria Hamond, a daughter of Captain Philip Hamond. Philip Hamond was a friend of Sullivan’s who accompanied him and his family out to the Falkland Islands in 1848. Georgena Maria was not born until the 1860s, so the watercolour was most likely painted after 1870.
