Panorama of Melbourne

Belonging to a collection held by the State Library of Victoria, this panorama represents Melbourne 27 years after Batman and Fawkner first settled the town. The images taken by Charles Nettleton from the top of Parliament House show a city under development. Visible are familiar sights like the Old Treasury Building, St Patricks Cathedral and the Melbourne Club. Some long forgotten buildings are shown including the Old White Hart Hotel (now the site of the Windsor) and Chalmers Church (burnt down early 1900s), while some familiar sites are seen in their original condition including the Princess Theatre, Fitzroy gardens and Carlton gardens.
