Footnotes

  • Edwin Stocqueler was born in Bombay and following the separation of his parents moved to Australia with his mother, Jane Stocqueler. There he was drawn to the Victoria goldfields and during the 1850s produced a series of historically important canvasses recording the workings and digging associated with the gold-rush.

    He is recorded as being resident in Colaba, Bombay, India in 1864 following the birth of his daughter and also visited Barbados. He died in London in 1895.

    The current work is a fine panorama of what is now the Central Business District (CBD) of Durban with Natal Bay and the Bluff beyond.
