Album of photographic views of Sydney, ca. 1879-1884 / Tronier Artist Photographerca. 1879-1884

by August Tronier
The Garden Palace, erected in the Botanic Gardens to house the 1879 Sydney International Exhibition, provided an excellent elevated vantage point to view Sydney's parklands and harbour. The balcony outside the Queensland Court was adorned with ferns and tropical plants and provided a relaxing spot away from the hubbub inside.
