    Description
    View of the Port Jackson lighthouse (New South Wales)


    SignificanceA lithograph by a German publisher who made a copy of the lithograph by Victor Adam based on artwork by Louis de Sainson, printed by Alexis Noel and originally published in 1833 as Plate 27 in the 'Atlas historique' accompanying Jules Dumont d'Urville's first ASTROLABE voyage account 'Voyage de la corvette Astrolabe' (1826 - 1829)
    HistoryThe recreational purpose for Sydney residents that the Macquarie lighthouse precinct had acquired by the 1820s is clearly expressed in this picture, in particular through the couple -an Army officer and his wife- in the foreground, strolling with their toddler and infant child (the latter is being carried by his father)

    Two horsemen and two horse-drawn carriages are also shown carrying well-to-do daytrippers out for a drive.
