Saint Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney, NSW - RANSOME Richard - 1850. 
Circa, Sydney 1850 - Engraving, printed by C.Kay, 230 x 350mm. Richard Ransome produced a number of copper-engraved views of Sydney from his premises at 244 Pitt Street, Sydney during the 1850s. It is recorded that he designed an elaborate letterhead for the Parramatta drapers James Gregg in April 1855, and it was probably around this time that this view of Saint Andrew's Cathedral was made. By 1857 he had moved to Melbourne where he completed a large engraving of Great Bourke Street, which was purchased for the Victorian national collections.The Cathedral is in the heart of Sydney and situated alongside the Town Hall, work was commenced by James Hume in 1837 and completed by Edmund Blacket in 1846-74, the end product being a fine example of Gothic revival architecture. The first service was in 1868, making it the oldest cathedral in Australia.
