Plate 41: Part of the text accompanying the illustration reads 'Hindley Street, which is about a mile in length, is the principal part for shops and public business, and presents an animated and bustling appearance. The ground in this street, and in King William Street, which intersects it, is very valuable; and is being rapidly built upon by the merchants and tradesmen ...'

This is one of 60 coloured lithographs found in the 1847 edition of 'South Australia Illustrated' by colonial artist George French Angas, together with a descriptive passage for each. The lithograph was created by J.W. Giles from Angas' original painting, which is very likely to have been copied from a earlier original by S.T. Gill. The date assigned is assumed to be approximately when the lithographs were created; the original paintings were done in earlier years
