Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia. The metropolis surrounds one of the world's largest natural harbours and sprawls towards the Blue Mountains to the west. The first British settlers arrived in 1788 with Captain Arthur Phillip and founded Sydney as a penal colony. The Opera House and Harbour Bridge are well known landmarks. The colony of New South Wales originally included Lord Howe Island, New Zealand, Norfolk Island and Van Diemen's Land.

King St. Sydney from Pitt St., looking E, February-March 1895 / H. King Syd.

Format: Albumen photoprint Notes: As a cable tram trundles up King Street towards Queens Square, a crowd occupies both sides of the roadway. They have assembled outside the Daily Telegraph office, where the latest news was posted each day. Judging by this photograph, it is not surprising that the 1909 Royal Commission on the Improvement of Sydney was critical of the traffic chaos on Sydney’s narrow streets.
