- Curator's comments
This is part of a collection of twenty-nine drawings by GA Robinson held by the British Museum, seven of which are on the opposite side of another drawing.
Robinson's journal of 2 January 1845 has no entry but he was in Melbourne at that time. This suggests that the river depicted might be the Yarra River at Melbourne.
- Not on display
- Acquisition notes
- This was probably part of the collection of artworks and ethnographic objects which Joseph Barnard Davis (q.v.) acquired from Robinson's widow in the 1860s, and which AW Franks (q.v.) later purchased for the British Museum at the auction sale of Davis's estate in 1883.
