Description:

Lithograph of the Blind Institution which was built in 1878 and opened with three workers, on the corner of Boomerang Street and William Street. Rare.

This series of views were the first examples of the new printing technique of photo lithography. In this method the plate was photo sensitised and the image was then transferred by photography. The plate then was inked and printed in the traditional way. Rare.

From 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.
