Description

Inscribed at lower centre `GR 1862’
14.9 x 25 cm
It is likely that the Fishers Creek watercolours (nos 2-5) show a bush in Paddington, possibly near the Glenmore Falls, or the stream which fed it. A Mr Fisher leased the Glenmore Distillery in the early 1850s. Point Piper Road is now Jersey Road.
