Print showing miners walking down a street lined with shaft houses.

Captain Campbell Hardy wrote in the article which accompanied this engraving in the Illustrated London News that, "Gold-street, as it is called — an assemblage of wooden houses, or rather shanties, raised up at an expense of some £2 or £3 in this country of cheap timber — is the subject of our Engraving."
