Description:

Rare engraving of Frank Gardiner a leading member of the Gardiner–Hall gang of bushrangers in New South Wales. The engraving shows Gardiner’s capture on 24 March at Apis Creek near Rockhampton, Queensland, where he was running a general store. He was recognised and reported to the police in Sydney. Gardiner was arrested and taken back to Sydney, and sentenced to 32 years hard labour. Gardiner had been granted a ticket of leave in December 1859 on the condition of staying in the Carcoar district and soon joined up with John Peisley. Johnny Gilbert joined them soon afterwards, and the gang started stealing cattle and horses. Gardiner’s ticket of leave was revoked when a warrant for his arrest for cattle stealing was issued. Gardiner had a partnership with William Fogg in a butcher shop at Spring Creek. Gardiner supplied Fogg with stolen cattle, and Fogg would slaughter the cattle and sell the meat.

Rare engraving from the original edition of the Illustrated Sydney News.

O.R.C. - Oswald Rose Campbell (1820 - 1887)

Campbell was an artist  born in the Channel Islands, arrived in Melbourne in October 1852. He then moved to Sydney for brief period and returned to Melbourne in 1864. On Thomas Clark's retirement, Campbell applied again for appointment as drawing-master at the School of Design, claiming that for the past twelve years he had been drawing on wood, chiefly figures for the illustrated papers. He was appointed on 1 December 1876 at a salary of £250.
