Description:

Wonderful image of tree ferns at Black Spur, Victoria.

From Stephan, Picturesque Views of Australia.

Adam Stephan ( - )

Stephan was a lithographer and Samuel Phillip, photographer, began working on their process of photo lithography in 1884, and by late 1887 had formed a company in Sydney. A Melbourne company was established in June 1889 and a Brisbane branch was also contemplated in that year.
