Biography:

Frederick Grosse (1828-1894)

Grosse was an engraver and vigneron, born in Prussia and arrived in Adelaide in January 1854, departing a few days later for Victoria. After a year on the Sandhurst (Bendigo) goldfields he set up business in Melbourne as a designer and wood-engraver. 

He set up the ill fated Illustrated Melbourne News but was in high demand for other illustrated newspapers and government publications.
