The roadway which is seen in the mid-distance has lately been constructed by the Government, / as the old tracks which formerly existed, were liable to be swamped by the periodical overflowing of the River. Mount / Ridell can be seen in the extreme distance immediately behind the roadway. / Corranderrk is the local habitation / for the natives of this district, and is situated on the right hand side of the picture, about a mile and a half / from the roadway.
