Fellows of Senate
Gallery of prints from wood-engravings
The 'Illustrated Sydney News' was a monthly illustrated newspaper for the colony of New South Wales in the nineteenth century. Until 1888, the illustrations were wood-engravings, each printed in black ink and each of which took one engraver about a week to complete.
Another was the 'Australian Town and Country Journal' which was published between 1870 and 1900.
This webpage includes wood-engravings of the following early Fellows of Senate from these publications:
- The Hon George Wigram Allen
- Professor Charles Badham
- Henry Ebenezer Barff
- The Most Rev Alfred Barry
- Sir Daniel Cooper Bt, GCMG
- The Hon Sir Frederick Matthew Darley
- Sir John Bayley Darvall
- The Hon Sir Edward Deas-Thomson, KCMG CB
- The Hon Sir Patrick Alfred Jennings, KCMG
- Professor Sir Mungo William MacCallum, CMG
- Sir William Montague Manning
- The Hon Sir James Martin
- Sir Charles Nicholson
- The Hon John Hubert Plunkett
- The Most Rev Archbishop John Bede Polding
- Nichol Drysdale Stenhouse
- Professor William John Stephens
- William Charles Wentworth
- The Rev John Woolley
After 1888, the 'Illustrated Sydney News' became the first Australian paper to reproduce a photograph using the new half-tone process. The slow and expensive wood engraving process was then obsolete.
