Rare early Pro Hart artist proof etching of H.M.S. Buffalo, signed in blue lower right.
The Buffalo first reached Australia in 1833 after being fitted out to carry convicts to New South Wales. It was on its return to Portsmouth in 1834 that Captain John
Hindmarsh commissioned the ship to transport free settlers to the new
colony of South Australia. The Buffalo brought the first settlers of the
colony of South Australia in 1836, unloading its passengers at present day Glenelg.
