Artist's Description

This painting in oil on canvas, 24inches x 36inches, was referenced from a monochromatic photograph found on the online collection of the Tasmanian Archives and Heritage Office. The photograph referenced was numbered AB71316295. The scene portrayed is the intersections of Elizabeth and Liverpool Streets, Hobart, Tasmania. I believe it to be circa 1957, as the newest cars shown are 1957 FE Holdens. Trams were in service in Hobart until 1960, so while in theory it could have been taken as late as 1960, my guess is that there would be more modern cars present. The tram at the right, came from another photograph and was placed there by me to improve the composition. All colours are of my own invention and may be incorrect.
