The Illustrated Sydney News of 16 June 1866 reproduced a 'panoramic view of Armidale, New South Wales from a photograph by Mr Eyby’ which at some time previously had been drawn up for publication by J.R. Roberts and engraved by Walter Mason . A similar view was published in the Illustrated Melbourne Post .
