Collection of tinted drawings includes stockmen, campers, bushmen, Aboriginal people, hunters and loggers, various landscapes, the built environment, dwellings and sheep stations.
"The album contains eight oval-shaped tinted sketches (including the frontispiece), four circular roundels, and five rectangular tinted drawings. Of particular note is the frontpiece, 'Miscellaneous sketches by S. T. G'. Two boys are depicted nailing up the letters S. T. G., watched by a newspaper boy holding a copy of the Argus, which neatly overlaps its rival, the Herald. To the left is thought to be a self-portrait of Gill in a top hat. The drawing, like the others in the sketchbook, is inscribed '55' in Gill's hand, and this has been altered by a different hand to '1856'."--Information from acquisitions documentation.
