About this item: 
This view of the Domain and Hyde Park shows the bulls-eye appearance of the newly built Archibald Fountain and the Anzac Memorial still under construction in south Hyde Park. The Domain, which originally extended down to the Harbour, had been set aside by Governor Phillip in 1788 as his private reserve. Hyde Park, names after London's Hyde Park, is Australia's olderst park, gazetted in 1810. It was the location of Sydney's first racecourse and cricket ground.
