Description:

Rare early view of Port Lincoln by William Westall, the official artist on Flinders voyage on the Investigator.

Colonel William Light, Surveyor-General of South Australia, was instructed to scout and survey various sites in preparation for a new state capital. Many of the surveyed sites like those at Nepean Bay, Kangaroo Island, Endeavour Bay and Port Lincoln, were rejected due to a lack of fresh water supply and poor soil quality.

William Westall (1781 - 1850)

Westall was a Royal Academy artist appointed to Mathew Flinders voyage at 19 years of age. His method of drawing topographical views was to rule up his drawing sheets in a grid pattern to obtain an accurate perspective.
