This photograph was taken from George Street, Sydney and looks up Bathurst Street. At the very end, where it joins Elizabeth Street and Hyde Park, the single most obvious feature of the photograph can still be seen today.
This photograph is of Charles Cowper, the second Premier of New South Wales, and his ministry. Sometimes referred to as ‘Slippery Charlie’, Cowper appears to have lived up to his name as he was elected premier five times between 1856 and 1870.
