It represents Sullivan's Cove, Old Hobart Town Tasmania
by the Colonial Architect John Lee Archer (1791-1852).
Among the buildings designed by Archer are Parliament House, (formerly the Customs House), the public offices used by the Treasury and the Audit Department in Hobart, the Ordnance Stores in Salamanca Place, several buildings at Anglesea Barracks; St John's Church with the orphan schools and the parsonage at New Town; the nave of St George's Church at Battery Point; Old Trinity (the Penitentiary Chapel) in Hobart; St Luke's Presbyterian Church at Bothwell, St Luke's Church of England at Richmond, the gaol and gaoler's house at Richmond, and parts of the gaol in Campbell Street, Hobart. In the engineering field his outstanding work was the stone bridge which still carries the Midland Highway over the Macquarie River at Ross.
