Found this unusual image of Launceston hidden in my great grandfather’s photo collection.
Taken around the early 1900’s, it’s unusual to see an image of this perspective as long lenses were not around in those days. I’m guessing the image has been heavily cropped from the glass negative.
Probably taken from the Launceston suburb of Trevalyn, the foreground shows shipping berthed at Kings Wharf and the North East River and Lower Charles Street behind it. In the town centre is the clock tower in Cameron Street and the top end of Elizabeth Street. In the background is the Ben Lomond mountain range, these days a national park.
I’m assuming the photo is by Charles A Hart, my great grandfather who was a founding member of the Northern Tasmania Camera Club.
