    Although trained as a photographer, he ended up working as a machinist and gunsmith.

  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Amateur.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Believed to have arrived in Victoria with the Royal Engineers as a civilian and armed with a photographer's certificate he had earned in England at the same institution that trained the Royal Engineers in photography, he appears not to have practiced professionally. Surviving views of Fort Victoria are among the earliest in existence. He was listed in the 1874 and 1877 directories as a machinist and gunsmith.
