Description:

Very rare print from, &quotHam’s Five Views of the Gold Fields of Mount Alexander and Ballarat, in the Colony of Victoria.&quot. In October 1851, alluvial gold was discovered along the Forest Creek, 11km from Mount Alexander and 32 kms from the Loddon River, into which the creek&#8217s water flowed after its junction with Barkers Creek. Diggers swarmed to the surrounding flats, hills and gullies as further rich discoveries were made. The early settlement was generally known as &#8216Forest Creek&#8217 but named Chewton in 1856. In 1857 Forest Creek (Chewton) had a population of 5,459, of which 1,785 were Chinese.
