There are two versions of this painting held by the Library, and the National Gallery of Victoria holds another. In this version, Gritten depicts the growing city from a favoured vantage point near the intersection of the present-day Clowes and Anderson streets in South Yarra. The pleasing arrangement of nature, shown in the formal garden beds, is evidence of Ferdinand von Mueller's design and planning which provide an appropriate setting for well-dressed citizens to take the air. From this viewpoint, Gritten depicts the city with a celestial light shining down upon the burgeoning metropolis. Henry Gritten exhibited works at the Royal Academy in London between 1835 and 1849. After arriving in Australia in 1853, he travelled to Tasmania where he produced a series of more or less similar scenes of Hobart. Often repeating his most popular works with only minor variations, Gritten also worked up paintings based on other people's sketches. One example in the Library's collection is Shoalhaven Gullies, which was based on a sketch by Robert Hoddle. Gritten was a founding member of the Victorian Academy of Arts and was represented at its inaugural exhibition in 1870
