The late Mrs. R. D. Ross — Two portraits of the late Mrs. R. D. Ross have just been finished at Mr. Duryea's studio, and may be seen there. One is an oil painting by Mr. K. Bull, who has succeeded in catching the ani mated and amiable expression of the deceased lady's features to perfection. The other is a water-colour portrait by Mrs. Manning, and it is difficult to say which is the better likeness. Both have been carefully taken and enlarged from a carte de visite which is a faithful portrait.

Edward P. Nesbit and John T. Lunn v. Stephen E. Nixon.— £20, for work and labour done. Mr. Symon for the plaintiffs ; Mr. A. G. Downer for the defendant. It appeared that the defendant entered into certain negotiations with Mr. Nesbit, who is a commission agent, with a view to the disposal of defendant's photographic business (late Duryea's). The business was transferred to Mr. Manning, formerly in defendant's employ, who entertained the contemplation of purchasing it through the intervention of Mr. Nesbit. Verdict for the amount claimed.

The Late John Howard Clark.— An excellent portrait of this gentleman has been executed at the studio of Mr. C. H. Manning, where it is now on view. It is a life-size bust, and was enlarged from a small negative taken in the same establishment. The likeness is very striking, and the artist has succeeded in catching Mr. Clark's happiest expression — the quiet smile, which his friends so well know, and which beginning at the eyes lit up his whole face.

Mr. C. H. Manning, photographer, has now on view at his establishment, in King William-street, a copy of Sir Wm. Jervois's coat of arms, which His Excellency has recently received from England. The work has been skilfully executed in oils by Mr. Nelson on canvas, 6 feet by 4 feet. The arms contain figures of a sapper and miner; also the Jervois shields, and the following mottoes- "Honor veretas praemium;" and "auspicium melioris aevi." Mr. Manning intends to place the coat of arms in a conspicuous place in front of his establishment.

At the Grand February Show - There was quite a host of portraits of His Excellency the Governor, done in oil colours or by the photographer, and one of these painted by Mr. C. H. Manning was regarded by the Judges as the best in the room. It is the one in which Sir William Jervois is represented in the dress of an ordinary citizen.

We have seen at Mr. C. H. Manning's photographic studio, King William-street, a fine portrait in oils of the late Mr. G. F. Angas, painted from a bust photograph taken a few years before his death. The picture is 22 inches by 18. The likeness of this venerable pioneer is faithfully reproduced, and the portrait will be prized as a fine representation of one to whose services the colony of South Australia owes so much.

Charles Manning purchased the studio formerly occupied by Peter Schourup at 150 Colombo Street, Christchurch in July 1887. Peter Schourup had died at the studio six months previously. He announced in The Star on 28 July 1887 the purchase:

C. H. Manning Photographer

Wishes to notify to the Public that he has purchased from the Executors that old-establishedphotographer's business recently carried on by the late Mr P. Schourup, 150, Colombo Street South. Mr Manning having had sixteen years' experience in the art part of which time he was engaged by those eminent artists, Messrs Hughes Bros., of Madras, India, Messrs Johnston, O'Shaunessy and Co., Melbourne, and Messrs Tuttle and Co., Sydney, can thoroughly guarantee all work executed by himself.

Mr. Manning has engaged that Eminent Artist Professor P. A. Brookes, whose abilities are well known to the public, to execute the work. This, as will be seen, is a genuine present. Specimens of the Ivory Types on view at the Studio. During Mr Manning's long experience, he has made a PARTICULAR STUDY of PHOTOGRAPHING CHILDREN and BABIES, and has no hesitation in saying that he is confident of giving entire satisfaction to parents and relations.

Early the following year he announced a large reduction in prices:

C. H. MANNING, Photographer, NOW OFFERS THE PUBLIC an opportunity of OBTAINING GUARANTEED HIGH-CLASS PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK at prices compatible with the times. From the 1st of January, 1888, he will issue Cabinet Photographs at 15s per dozen, and C.D.V.'s at 7s 6d per dozen. All work guaranteed. Every sitter must be satisfied, or no charge made. Note the address: C. H. MANNING, (Late Schourup), 150, COLOMBO STREET.

In September 1888 he photographed the Roman Catholic Bishop of Christchurch:
The Right Rev Dr Grimes. — It is not often that a photographer has such an opportunity for producing effective pictures as Mr C. H. Manning has recently had. This is the "taking" of the Right Rev Dr Grimes, Roman Catholic Bishop of Christchurch. The Right Rev Prelate is taken in his episcopal robes, such as he wears when taking part in grand functions, as also in the less sumptuous cassock, rochet, and pallium. The photographs are in various sizes, from "panels" downwards, and no doubt will be in great demand, especially among the members of his Lordship's flock. 

Star, Issue 6660, 27 September 1889, Page 3

He later added to his newspaper adverts that he had photographed the King of Siam (while in India) Sir Anthony Musgrave, Sir William Robinson, Sir F. Broome and the elite of Australia and New Zealand.

Following damage to Eden George's studio in 1890 the photographers Charles Manning, Carl Gerstenkorn and Robert Meers were implicated by George in the brake in, however it was suspected that Eden George had done the damage himself to discredit the other photographers.

He photographed 35 staff members of The Star and Lyttelton Times newspapers in 1891 - "all excellent specimens of the photographer's art, and quite equal to the usual high class of work turned out from Mr Manning's studio ..." The Star, Issue 7111, 12 March 1891, Page 3

C. H. Manning, having just imported from Europe new backgrounds, accessories, and other modern photographic appliances, is capable of now producing even superior work (if possible) than heretofore, at the same moderate prices; any kind of weather suitable, owing to him using the Prize Plates of England, they being exquisitely sensitive.

Mr C. H. Manning.

A very painful impression was produced in town this morning by the news that Mr C. H. Manning, photographer, had committed suicide at his studio in Colombo Street. It appears that about 8 a.m. the deceased's son, Mr Lionel Manning, went to open the studio, and found his father lying dead on a couch in a small room upstairs. On a table beside him was an empty bottle labelled, "Nitrate of Silver," which it had evidently contained. There were also a medicine glass, a bottle containing whiskey mixed with something not determined, and a few pieces of cardboard, on which were written messages to the deceased's wife. Young Manning, on finding the body, called in Mr W. Congreve, ironmonger, whose shop is opposite the studio, a telephone message was sent to the Police Station, and Constables Bosworth and Ramsay went to the premises and took charge of the body, locking it up in the room in which it was found. It is supposed that Mr Manning's mind had been affected by financial troubles. The matter was reported to Mr H. W. Bishop, coroner, who ordered an inquest to be held at the A1 Hotel, at 2.30 p.m. to-day.

One of the messages in the deceased's handwriting on the pieces of cardboard was dated from "Fated Studio," and asked his wife's forgiveness. It was dated 5 a.m., 10.9.95. Another contained the words "New Brighton cemetery, please." A third was a list of names of business firms and sums of money, presumably debts, amounting in the aggregate to £17 18s, with the words "It's these that have killed me. God bless and protect my darling and lovable wife and family."

There were one or two other memoranda, referring principally to business matters, the last being dated "10-9-95," and signed "C.H.M." It is a coincidence that the former tenant of the studio, Mr P. Schourup, also poisoned himself there.

An inquest was held this afternoon at the A1 Hotel, before Mr H. W. Bishop, coroner. Sergeant-Major Mason conducted the inquiry. Dr Irving stated that he had made a post mortem examination of the body. He found evidences of old-standing disease of the membranes of the brain. The stomach contained about six ounces of a dark liquid, and showed unmistakable evidence of a large quantity of caustic poison having been taken — quite sufficient to cause death. The state of the brain might tend to make him commit suicide.

Lionel Walter Manning, son of deceased, stated that he last saw his father yesterday, at 5 p.m., at the shop. On going to the shop this morning he found him lying dead. His father had been greatly depressed for some time, owing to business worries. Charles Henry Franks, solicitor, stated that he was acquainted with the affairs of deceased, who was considerably embarrassed, and was much depressed in consequence. Isabel Bruce stated that he saw the deceased about five minutes to eight in the private bar of the Cafe de Paris. He was then perfectly sober, but seemed very strange in his manner. He had a glass of port wine, and took away 1s 6d worth of brandy in a bottle. The liquor in the bottle produced was brandy, but had been mixed with something else. Frances E. Andrews deposed to seeing the deceased last night, about 8.20. He seemed all right then. Edward M. Parrott gave evidence as to having seen the deceased at times in a very depressed state. Samuel Clarke stated that he heard the deceased last night about. 8.45 in his room above witness's shop. Constable Bosworth also gave evidence.

William Bush stated that some time ago he had a conversation with deceased, who said he did not think life was worth living, and that he did not think he could bear his pain and troubles. Dr Stewart deposed that some time ago he was called in to attend deceased, who was suffering from insomnia, loss of appetite, and was generally in such a condition that witness would not have been surprised to learn of his having committed suicide. The jury returned a verdict of "Suicide while in a state of temporary insanity."

Just a correction to the name of the wife of Lionel Walter Manning - she was Kathleen Dreweatt Akroyd. Dreweatt was her maternal grandmother's surname.

Thanks Annie, I have made the correction.

Hi there, do you have names to any of the photos here as some are from my Grandfathers album and there dont seem to be any names??
Would love to put names to the faces.
Thanks Vicki

I know its been a long time since this post was made, but I was wondering if there are any other places to find more cabinet card photos by Manning. I am particularly interested in seeing two of a NZ ventriloquist whose stage name was Lieutenant Herman (real name Thomas Martin Powell) apparently made while he was on tour in Adelaide in 1879. There are four photos of him made by Harding in the National Archive of New Zealand, but I found an article from 1879 that mentions the ones made by Manning. I'm not sure if they still exist anywhere, but I'd love to see them if they do.

Thank you!
