Description:

Scarce engraved colonial engraving of the meat markets which were constructed adjacent to the Old Melbourne Cemetery which was used as a market reserve from November 1847 and a livestock and hay market operated on the area referred to as the Lower Market from 1857. This irregular-shaped site bounded by Elizabeth, Victoria, Queen and Therry streets was granted to the Melbourne Town Council on 2 March 1859 for use as a market (referred to as the Lower Market site). A meat market, constructed by builder, Peter Cunningham, was opened on the site ten years later in 1869.
