About this item:
This tranquil scene is a view of oaks from the entrance to Domain, near St Mary's Cathedral, looking to the entrance near Macquarie Street. In 1810-12, Governor Macquarie built a similar 290 metre wall in the Botanic Gardens to exclude trespassers, although the 'respectable class of inhabitants' could resort there for 'innocent recreation' during the day time.
