Our Fifteenth Anniversary 2005-2020

Fifteen Years ago (even earlier, actually) we started blogging about nineteenth century Tasmanian photographer Thomas J. Nevin (1842-1923).  We look forward to another two years at least as the project draws closer to completion. Contributions and donations are most welcome, and many thanks for your involvement.

For all enquiries: email here.
