[Hobart Seen From The West]

1904. Vintage platinum photograph, panorama, annotated and dated “registered 1904” and signed in negative lower left, 38.1 x 118.1cm. Repaired surface loss, missing portions, tears and scuffs to upper portion and edges, slight soiling. Laid down on acid-free backing.

Image shows the city of Hobart and the harbour, taken from a raised vantage point uphill from Lansdowne Crescent, West Hobart. Vaniman had intended that his panoramas be exhibited in public buildings as massive enlargements, but today they survive as extremely detailed platinum contact prints.
