As the Australasian Sketcher was published by Wilson & McKinnon, and, in 1889, absorbed into the firm's subsidiary paper, the Australasian, the contents of the latest addition was cross-advertised in the Argus. A listing in the Argus on Thursday, 18 November 1880, p. 4, provides details and captions of the contents of the latest edition of the Australasian Sketcher, that of Saturday, 20 November, that includes the illustration described above. Although this sheet has no date markings, it is clearly the same edition as advertised.
