Description :

Lithograph of Encounter Bay. Part of the text accompanying the illustration reads 'The view ... is taken from the road leading to Mr Strangway's station; looking southwards over Victor Harbour, towards Granite Island, and Wright Island, with the conical bluff of Rosetta Head stretching out to the west'.

One of 60 coloured lithographs found in the 1847 edition of South Australia Illustrated by colonial artist George French Angas, together with a descriptive passage for each. The lithograph was created by JW Giles from Angas' original painting. The date assigned is assumed to be approximately when the lithographs were created; the original paintings were done in earlier years.
