[Bennelong Point, Circular Quay And Dawes Point, Sydney]

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

Image taken from the mast of a ship on Sydney Harbour. Vaniman had intended that his panoramas be exhibited in public buildings as massive enlargements, but today they survive as extremely detailed platinum contact prints.
