Compare to Brisbane 1844 (1833) map Approx location of General cemetery near Skew street at end of William Jolly bridge Approx location of early graves near Herschel street. Windmill and Commissariat Stores remain.

Queen Street exists today, as the darker orange. The windmill from 1844 still exists and is found in the kink in Wickham Tce. Creek street today follows a similar alignment to creek in the foreground, presumably following the lower lying land that is Adelaide street through the bog that is King George Square today, continuing along Roma street. The original North Quay (General Cemetery) was described as being "on the bank of the river on the curve of North Quay". (Perhaps off the top of this modern map),
