Photographer's negatives - the most common question I am asked relates to the current location of photographer's negatives - see this post.

I'm not able to provide any information about photographers other than that on this site. I'm am also not able to date photographs or assist you in identifying people in photographs you may have. I am unable to assist in locating the current location of business records or negatives of any photographer.

I recommend the Auckland City Library's website for more information about New Zealand photographers - http://www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/dbtw-wpd/photographers/basic_search.htm




SADD, Henry Samuel



Henry Samuel Sadd
1811-1893

born 1811 Middlesex, England the son of Samuel Sadd and Sarah Clint, she was a half sister of George Clint (1770-1854) the English portrait painter and engraver. Arrived in Auckland before 7 February 1854 when Henry Sadd of Edward Street, engraver is listed in the Daily Southern Cross as one of those liable to serve on Juries for that year. Departed Auckland 23 May 1854 on the "Moa" for Sydney with Mrs Sadd and two children [1]. Died 24 November 1893 at his residence Bridport Street, South Melbourne aged 82 years.

 Robert Henry Wynyard
 (24 December 1802 – 6 January 1864)
by Henry Samuel Sadd after a daguerreotype by Hartley Webster
Wynyard, R.H. Gen A.B., C.B., circa 1860, 
Purchased 1916. Te Papa (O.013621)

 
Portrait of his Excellency Col. Wynyard, C. B.
We have been favoured with a copy of a highly finished likeness of His Excellency Colonel Wynyard, the Officer Administering the Government of New Zealand, and which has just been published by Mr. Williamson.

The portrait, which is an engraving on an enlarged scale, from the miniature Daguerreotype of Mr. Webster, is the production of Mr. H. Sadd, recently of Auckland, but now of Melbourne, - the brother of the eminent English artist, and himself a man of no mean reputation in the school of art. In England and in America, Mr. Sadd is equally and honourably known for the merit of his productions; and in the latter country he was the first to create a taste for the English style of engraving.

The portrait before us, whilst it exhibits, in a modified degree, that pecaliarity of aspect which all daguerreotypes impart to the human countenance, is essentially a work of great merit, and an honourable specimen of the artist’s genius. Like the finished translation of a clever book, it has been rendered with a delicacy of touch, a fidelity of conception, and a firmness of execution, which stamp it as a work of a master spirit. The portrait is, in brief, an admirable one; not merely as a worthy specimen of colonial art, but as an able embodiment of all the leading qualities that render portraits desirable, - fidelity of feature, and a marked accuracy of characteristic personal expression. In these details the engraving excels. It places before us a life-like “presentment” of a gentleman with whom the colonists of Auckland have been long and agreeably allied; - of one who, like themselves, has felt the lights and shadows which have gladdened or depressed their fluctuating and arduous career. We greet the publication of such a portrait as an appropriate and well-timed Souvenir, - an offering which will be prized long after passing differences with the Ruler shall have sunk into utter oblivion, and when the kindly and courteous disposition of the man shall alone be remembered.

 The Trinity Wesleyan Church, Dunedin
by an unknown photographer
The architect of this building was Robert Arthur Lawson, of Dunedin and the building contractor was Edward Willis U'Ren.

The Trinity Wesleyan Church, Dunedin, has for over thirty years been the headquarters of Methodism in Otago. The church stands at the corner of Stuart Street and Moray Place, and is an attractive and solid-looking building. It is built of blue stone, with white Oamaru stone facings, supported by strong buttresses, and adorned with ornamental windows and minarets. The basement below the church is used as the Sunday school, and for various classes. The church was opened for divine worship on the 10th of July, 1870, when the Rev. A. R. Fitchett, now Dean Fitchett, were the officiating ministers. The building and site represent a total cost of about £5,000. The church manse is situated in York Place. The Rev. A. R. Fitchett, the late Rev. J. Berry, Rev. W. Morley, Rev. J. J. Lewis are some of the ministers who have held the pastorate of Trinity Church.
