Before the introduction of photography most
educated people were taught to sketch. A great
deal of our knowledge of early colonial cities,
villages and buildings in general is due to the habit
such people had of sketching what interested them.
Tasmania was very fortunate in this respect. The
purpose of this paper is to record what is known
of Charlotte Cleveland, an amateur artist who left
behind a few sketches of considerable historical
interest. The information in this account has come
firstly from Mr. A. H. Weedon, Charlotte Cleveland's
grandson, and secondly from an article "The
History of the Cleveland or Ainslie Estate" contained
in a pamphlet on Cosgrove Park Home
published by the Launceston General Hospital when
Cosgrove Park was opened.
