Description:

Detailed map of Sydney orientated north to the right showing the extent of development of Sydney in it’s first fifty years. There are number of interesting notes such as the two places for bathing in the edge of the harbour, one in the Domain at Farm Cove, “Bathing House” and the other at the end of Erskine Street, Soldiers Point, “Military Bathing House”. The “Turnpike Gate” which was at the apex of Pitt and George Streets charged tolls for the maintenance of the roads. The gate keepers lodge was designed in Gothic style by the convict architect Francis Greenway in 1819. It was demolished in the 1850’s to make way for the “old round house”.

One of the few pre 1850 colonial plans of Sydney.
