E. H. Forster

Maryborough photographer 1872 - 1888

Forster opened the studio for the American and Australasian Photographic Company, named the American and Australian Photographic Company.

Marcel Safier, Brisbane based photohistorian and collector, has a web page devoted to Forster.

Marcel introduces the connection that maybe Beaufoy Merlin saw the opportunity for expansion of the American and Australasian Photographic Company into Queensland when he passed through the South East of Queensland on his boat trip to the north in 1871.

The other connection is that Forster married in Sydney in 1871 then moved back to Maryborough and opened the studio for the American and Australasian Photographic Company, named the American and Australian Photographic Company.

All the while, as stated by Marcel, there was also a similarity in the style of photography as being practiced by Merlin, Lind and Forster, to be later expanded by Bayliss.
