William Cawston - Convict Boy to Colonial Photographer 1827-1916
A tribute to one of Australia's lesser known pioneer photographers - the ex-convict William Cawston.

Cawston arrived in Hobart Town, Van Diemen's Land in 1845 as a 17-year old convict on a Ticket of Leave, giving his occupation as a carpenter. He later moved to Launceston and developed a reputation as an excellent photographer, winning an award for architectural and landscape views, which now make up an important record of the history of Launceston and the north of Tasmania.
