Date created: 1890s
Description: 
View of Perth seen from an elevated undeveloped block of land. A man with a dark moustache wearing a bowler hat surveys the block. He resembles the man in other photographs taken by T. Kelly. The large building on the left with its ornate tower and many iron lace decorated verandas is the Federal Hotel on Wellington Street. It was built in 1896 by Bernard Stein and was demolished to make way for a freeway. Faint smoke around the centre of the view is probably from the railway station on Wellington Street. The buildings visible from beyond the fence seem to be mostly residential and encompass both freestanding houses and terraces such as those to the right of the Federal Hotel.
