Bendigo Flat as seen from Wattle Hill, 1875

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3087C/34

Scope and Contents

180 x 124 mm. A view looking over a former goldfield, with excavated land in the foreground, and small domestic houses beyond. The text beneath the picture reads ‘This flat twenty years since, was a busy scene with its thousands of diggers, breaking the native soil in search of gold. The canvas tents then used have long since given place to the more solid and comfortable domiciles constructed of wood and bricks’. A better print of the same photograph occurs in Y308A/76.


  • Creation: 1875
