Cremore Gardens in Melbourne by Walter Woodbury (1834-1885). The cone of 'Vesuvius' is visible behind the dance rotunda. Woodbury sailed to Australia to make his fortune and set up a photographic studio in Melbourne. He invented a process called the Woodburytype, a pigmented gelatine image, which had clarity of detail, a 3D effect and great permanence.
