    Description:

    Rare engraving of the first exhibition of Amercian Trotters in Australia.

    Exerpt from the original edition of the Illustrated Sydney News;

    'On Saturday afternoon the Randwick racecourse presented a more than usually busy appearance, which was accounted for by the fact that an exhibition of the American trotting horses lately imported by Dr. Weir, from California, was to take place. The horses, comprising ten in number, worn landed here last month and is the first venture of trotting horses to the Antipodes for disposal. The late efforts to inaugurate trotting as one of the sports of the colonies is likely to be successful, and many will hope that Dr. Weir's present enterprise will be sufficiently encouraging for that gentleman to introduce to Australia another batch of trotting horsea at a future date. Dr. Weir's first efforts at establishing a trade between California and Australia is a cause for congratulation, and his judgment, too, is excellent, as the grand looking animals will testify. They are now to be seen at Garling's Bazaar, Pitt-street, The Randwick course was kindly granted for the exhibition by the committee of the Australian Jockey Club.'

    Very rare engraving from the original edition of The Illustrated Sydney News, which was published from 1854 to 1889 and included a number of high quality engravings in each issue. Each engraved illustration would take an engraver between one and two weeks to make.
