Description:

Rare colonial engraving of Howell’s Mill at Parramatta. Howells’ Mill was a combined wind and water mill built in 1828 on the southern bank of the Parramatta River by ex-convict George Howell and his son George Jr. Standing 100 feet (30 metres) high and featuring six separate floors, it was the largest mill in the area. Howell constructed a dam across the river to supply his mill with a steady flow of water. After Howell’s death, the mill fell into disrepair and was abandoned in 1868.
