Language of Materials


Physical Characteristics and Technical Requirements

Poor condition, overall yellowing and some fading.


In Sands's Commercial and General Sydney Directory (1864), Sydney: John Sands, page 325, the address of the Sir Walter Scott Inn is given as 270 Sussex Street, but the one pictured here would appear to be a different establishment since it would make the picture's viewpoint the same as Y3086P/19 which it clearly is not.
