Description:

Large photo-lithograph of Watson’s Bay as it was in the late 1880’s with excellent detail. From the series of views which were the amongst the first examples of this 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.

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.
