Carte de visite.

Studio of Charles Percy Pickering (1825-1908), 616 George Street, near Wilshire's Buildings, Sydney. Opposite the Golden Gate, Brickfield Hill.

Found in a junk shop in Darlinghurst, Sydney.

Brickfield Hill was a locality of early Sydney situated along the section of George Street between Town Hall and Haymarket (see this 1832 map - www.flickr.com/photos/state-records-nsw/4930537203/). Today's slight gradient belies the original steep approach to the city. In the late 1830s the steep gradient of Brickfield Hill was reduced by manual convict labour, and the material removed from the crest was used to grade the approach.

When the level of the hill was sliced down, by about fifteen feet, one of the houses beside "the Road" required to have a storey built underneath, to bring it level with the street - an unusual building operation that attracted the attention of the public. [David S. Macmillan, Some Recollections of Sydney's Early Development (Sydney: McCarron, Stewart & Co., 1965).]

The area had once been the heart of the colony's brick-making industry, a landscape dotted with clay-pits, brick-kilns and tree stumps (see Brickfield Hill and village on the High Road to Parramatta (c.1797) by Edward Dayes, after Thomas Watling). It was notorious not only for its reeking kilns, the smoke of which would sometimes choke the city, but for the grisly murder of Reverend Clode in 1799. His dismembered body was found dumped in one of the clay-pits - a trail of blood led back to a nearby house. The house where the murder took place was burned down and the perpetrators hung on the still warm ashes. Their bodies were left hanging to rot as a warning to the denizens of Brickfield Hill.

By the late 1830s the clay-pits had been exhausted, and many handsome buildings began to be erected to replace the shanties, taverns and small farms. Brickfield Hill had become an important commercial centre by the time this photo was taken. Pickering operated a studio at 612 George Street from late 1860. - www.daao.org.au/bio/charles-percy-pickering/#artist_biogr... - It would appear he expanded to nearby 616 at some point - Cato mentions him operating a large establishment at 610-616 George Street [Jack Cato, The Story of the Camera in Australia (Melbourne : Georgian House, 1955), p. 45]. From 1868, J. Davis, formerly of Pickerings, was operating his Sydney Photo Co. studio from 616 George Street. - handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/73826

ST. MARY'S CATHEDRAL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE EMPIRE. Sir, - Feeling assured you, above any private individual, would give publicity to anything that would tend to further the interests of the working committee of St. Mary's Cathedral, we beg of you, as a favour, to insert the following few lines for us. We are photographers, and at any time, should a bazaar be given in aid of St. Mary's, by some of the committee calling on us, we shall only be too happy and proud to give £50 worth of likenesses of all the eminent ministers of Sydney, towards swelling the amount required to raise such a noble building again. We are, dear Sir, yours truly, MORRIS MOSS and CO., Photographers, 487, George-street South, Sydney. - trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/64140671

This novel offer to help the fundraising efforts for a new Cathedral, appeared one week after the devastating fire of 29 June 1865. - www.dictionaryofsydney.org/entry/st_marys_cathedral - I wonder if the offer was taken up, and if so, where the portraits are now?

Moss & Co. had moved premises from 487 George Street South to 637 George Street South by 1869:
