A panoramic view looking west from above Watson's Bay towards Sydney Cove. The bay is named after Robert Watson, the first lighthouse keeper of Macquarie Lighthouse and a sailor on H.M.S. SIRIUS, flagship of the First Fleet.

Frederick Casemero Terry, (1825-1869) was an English artist and engraver who arrived in Sydney in the early 1850's. He gained a good reputation as a water-colour artist and engraver and in 1854 his work was the basis of the illustrated book  Australian Keepsake published by Sands & Kenny in 1855. Due to a mix-up, the attribute for the drawings is assigned to Fleury. He exhibited in the Paris Exhibition in 1855 as part of a group showing of artists working in Australia.
