Hobart Balloon’s Eye Print

The Hobart Balloon’s Eye print is reproduced in the same size from the original wood engraving published in the Australasian Sketcher of 10 May 1879.  Such ‘Balloon’s Eye View’ sketches were at that period a popular means of conveying the development and extent of the capital cities of Australia.  A.C Cooke, from whose drawing this picture was engraved, drew prolifically for the illustrated newspapers.
