Individual panels held in SLV, Fed. Uni. (Ballarat).

“William Bardwell was a professional photographer with a successful business in Ballarat and Melbourne...It seems Bardwell was fond of using unusual vantage points: in 1863, The Argus reported that he had photographed the ceremony of the laying of the foundation stone of the Burke and Wills memorial in Sturt Street from the roof of the Ballarat Post Office.” In 1873 he showed a “photographic panorama of the city of Ballarat” in the Victorian section of the London International Exhibition, presumably this very view.
