WESTERN AUSTRALIA, SWAN RIVER
J. RapkinA. H. WrayW. Lacey
A map of the southwestern portion of the state of Western Australia, focusing on the area around Swan River, with brightly hand-coloured county borders. Engravings of pastoral, aboriginal, and maritime scenes are present throughout the map, along with a view between Perth and Fremantle, and Great Seal of Western Australia at that time. Relief is shown, and coastlines are lightly shaded in blue watercolouring and with the use of tinting tools.
The scale bar is in miles, and Greenwich is used for the prime meridian; the scale was calculated from the map's scale bar and the coordinates were obtained via georeferencing.
