Abstract

Photograph of the Tasmanian Club, Walch's, Derwent and Tamar Assurance Company, Post Office, Supreme Court, Franklin Square, Town Hall, Museum and Pregnell's butcher shop in Macquarie Street, Hobart in about 1875. The Georgian style building was designed by architect James Alexander Thomson and built in 1846 for banker and merchant Captain Charles Swanston as the Derwent Bank. After the depression of the 1840's the Bank went into liquidation and the building was bought by the Tasmania Club in April 1873 and is still their residence today. The Tasmanian Club was established in 1861 in Hobart by seventy gentlemen. It was founded on the 'London pattern', that is, election or exclusion of candidates by ballot. The photographers are Anson Brothers whose firm was located in Liverpool, Collins and Elizabeth Streets between 1878 and 1891.
