In the early nineteenth century, likenesses in profile, or silhouettes, sometimes delicately highlighted in gold were all ordinary folk could afford. The Frith family, John, his three children, Frederick, Henry Albert, and Letitia, travelled the British Isles inviting the "gentry and residents" to sit for these "highly finished" portraits. This art form was overtaken by the camera and photographic portraiture.

The younger Friths emigrated to Australia and New Zealand where they adapted to this new medium with the same skills, producing a record of nineteenth century Tasmania, Victoria and New Zealand and their peoples, both indigenous and the newly settled. This is the story of that transition.

About the Author

Noel Tozer is the great-grandson of Frederick Frith. His interest in the achievements of the Frith family arose through a simple query into the genealogy of the family. Very little was known of the place of the Friths in the art world, either as portraitists or photographers, so this became a real 'Who do you think you are?' project. He is a professional engineer who worked for over 40 years in the chemical industry, also holding a degree in commerce where his interest in economic and industrial history was sparked. In retirement, he lives in Melbourne. This is his first publication.
