Hobarton by J.H. Hughes, c. 1836

This pretty hand-coloured map of Hobart shows named streets, named public buildings, parks and reserves, surrounding farmland, Derwent River, brickfield, burial grounds, signal staff and barracks.

Only one other copy of this map is known to exist, and that is in private possession in Hobart.
