This unusual view of old Saint Mary's Cathedral is found in the sketch book of Henry Campbell, now part of the Collection of the State Library of NSW.
Mr. Campbell made this sketch probably in the year 1842 looking west from a vantage point in what is known as The Domain. From there he was able to sketch the apse of the old Cathedral and its south transept. Other parts of the building are obscured by trees. On the extreme right of the drawing can be seen the spire of Saint James' Anglican Church, King Street.
