Kangaroo Point, Brisbane. Armytage view from 1874 pair of engravings.

by Armytage, J.C.

Brisbane, towards Kangaroo Point. Reproduction from a (hand-coloured) steel engraving drawn and engraved from a photograph, by prominent English topographical artist James Charles Armytage (1802-97) for “Australia Illustrated” published in London circa 1872.

Looking from the New Farm end of Bowen Terrace, across Kangaroo Point, Brisbane River and the Botanic Gardens, to the newly completed Parliament House building (opened in 1868) - suggesting the photograph was taken in Brisbane in 1869-70, and provided to Armytage by Richard Daintree, Agent-General for Queensland in London from 1872. Main Street was the only road in Kangaroo Point, and the sawmills and engineering works had not yet been constructed there.
