A cabinet photograph of an engraved portrait of George Fife Angas (1789-1879), 'Father and Founder of South Australia'

Adelaide, Gresham Studio, [1890s].

A gelatin silver photograph (135 × 93 mm, including a facsimile signature of the subject), mounted on textured card, with the small inkstamp of 'Gresham Studio, Adelaide' on the verso.

Mount slightly marked at the foot of the recto; in excellent condition.

'The South Australian Register' (2 November 1891) featured a review of the recently published biography of George Fife Angas by Edwin Hodder (London, Hodder and Stoughton). It is described as having an 'etched portrait by H. Manesse'. We have identified several variant portraits used as the frontispiece; this unattributed one, similar to Manesse's, could well be another example. However, this cabinet card was clearly produced as a stand-alone portrait.
