This slide shows the second of six sections of the painting titled Cycloramic View of Canberra Capital Site, View Looking from Camp Hill, created by Robert Charles Coulter on 2 January 1911.

This painting was one of two, painted by Coulter, which were included in the Federal Capital City Design Competition kits. To make copies of the original painting to include in the design competition kits, the watercolour painting would have been reproduced using lithography.

To produce these glass slides, the lithograph would have been photographed and sections of the painting printed on the glass slides. The slides were then hand-coloured by the employees of Squire Photo Supplies, Sydney.

Areas shown in this slide are West Camp, Yarralumla and Black Mountain. There are houses and a ploughed field visible in the centre of the slide, with dead trees on the hills behind them.
