Arthur Streeton during the drought Summer of early 1889, visited the site where Buvelot painted ‘Summer Afternoon, Templestowe’. Although living at this time in Eaglemont, Streeton noted that ‘It was my interest in this (Buvelot) picture which caused me to walk from Heidelberg Station to Templestowe and paint a small canvas.’ The small canvas was ‘The Road To Templestowe’, which depicts an easterly view along Templestowe Road.
