Description

Depicts a view over Anzac Cove, looking from the hillside of Gaba Tepe across the water towards the hills beyond. George Lambert wrote on 27 February, 1919: 'To-day the Mission visited Gaba Tepe, from whence Jacko used to pound Anzac Beach. I managed to get a small painting of the stuff one sees of Anzac from Gaba Tepe' (Lambert 1938, p. 108).
