Dated from year Penman and Galbraith began operating in Adelaide to time the company moved to Freeman Street in 1856 - it has not proved possible to identify during which years the firm operated from Pirie Street, but from 1856 onwards it is listed (Adelaide City & Port Commercial Directory and Almanac, 1856) firstly in Freeman Street, and then Rundle Street till 1874 when it moved to Currie Street. In 1880 the firm relocated for the last time to Gresham Street.
A number of these lithographs were later republished in Dublin by E.J. Harty, 9 see "Hints of the colonies" Mitchell Library reference number F741/H
