About the artwork:

The Almond Garden, Campbell Town


Exhibited in The Midlands: Whimsy and Pathos by Mandy Hunniford at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Launceston in 2019.

In 1827 John McLeod planted a large almond garden at his property, Meadowbank at Campbell Town and parts of the garden still remain today. McLeod was a generous hospitable man which was illustrated when he held a extravagant ball at Meadowbank in 1840.

John McLeod was one of the earliest storekeepers and in 1840 he opened an agency for the Union Bank. Martin Cash, who later gained notoriety as a bushranger, was employed by McLeod as a cashier.
