William Spearman Young
Production date
One watercolour showing a group of men sitting on a beach beside a river. Young sent the following caption with the painting:
“No. 3 shows boiling our billy; the doctor geologising, me taking a sketch, and yourself, Holmes and Charlie congratulating yourselves that we were getting out of the everlasting mountains and into something like a level bit of country. We had a heavy scramble over the Bluff to the right, and from thence first saw the coveted salt sea."
