Rare early, detailed plan of Sydney extending from ‘Black Wattle Swamp Cove’ (present day Prince Alfred Park) in the west to ‘Toll House’ (near present day Ruschcutters Bay) in the east.

‘Bon Accord’, Horses and vehicles that went up Bridge Street to cross the Tank Stream had to cross a foot-traffic bridge at its mouth known as the Bon Accord, or Halfpenny Bridge, so named for the cost charged by the Bon Accord Wharf, which owned the bridge.
