  • 15 Apr 1863, BOBARDT. - On the 31st January, at Halle, Prussia, in the sixty-second year of his age, Edward Bobardt, Esq., the beloved father of Mr. O. Bobardt, mechanical engineer, of 131 King-street, Melbourne. Deeply and deservedly regretted by all who know him.7
  • 25 Nov 1864, An ingenious and, at the same time, simple instrument for recording the revolutions of a carriage wheel, and, consequently— the circumference of the wheel being known — measuring the distance travelled, has been invented and patented by Mr O. Bobardt, engineer, residing at the corner of Bourke and King streets, and formerly modeller at the museum. It consists of a concentric cogwheel fixed on the inner end of the nave of the wheel of the carriage, which turns another small cog-wheel that, by means of a connecting rod, communicates with the recording machinery, which is similar to that of a gas or water meter, and is contained in a small cylindrical case fixed on the middle of the axle. The machine, though very small, is capable of recording ten millions of revolutions. Coach proprietors and others, to whom it is of importance to know the distance traversed by a vehicle, will find the instrument well worthy of their patronage. Its usefulness, however, is not limited to this purpose, but may be applied to the measurement of roads, boundaries, areas, &c; and so rendered available for surveying purposes, as, while its perfect accuracy may be confidently depended upon, an amount of work could be per- formed by it in a few hours that would by ordinary means occupy several days. One of the instruments has been fitted to a buggy at the establishment of Messrs Stevenson and Elliott, where it may be examined by those who may wish to do so. It has been several times tested by those gentlemen ; and, on one occasion in particular, was found to record a four-mile distance with the utmost exactness.8
  • 2 Nov 1870, DEATH. HERTZBERG.-On the 2nd September, in the 3rd German parallel, at Shiltigheim, before Strasburg, killed together with his colonel by one shell, Carl Adolph Hertzberg, captain first-class of the Royal Prussian Engineer Staff, son of the late Professor Dr. Medic. Hertzberg, of Halle Taale, Prussia, and old and esteemed friend and military school comrade of O. Bobardt, mechanical engineer, Melbourne. "Er starb auf dem felde der ehre für sein Vaterland."9
  • 15 May 1871, PROTZE.-Killed, while leading his three batteries before Belfort, at the last battle in the French war, Albert Protze, major in the Prussian artillery, and Knight of the Iron Cross, cousin of Otto, Henry Gustav and John Bobart, of Melbourne ; a hero of the campaigns of 1864, 1866, and 1870.10

    On the 24th June a marriage was solemnised at the pretty Presbyterian Church, St. George's, East St. Kilda.

The bride was attended by six bridesmaids, the Misses Rawley (2), Short, Sydenham, and Munro, the latter being the two little daughters of Mr. David Munro, and cousins of Miss Bobardt. Cream, blue, and pink were the colours chosen for the bridesmaids' costumes, draped with white lace. The bride wore cream satin, with long train and trimmings of old family lace, a small wreath and tulle veil, the latter almost reaching to the ground. A novel feature at this wedding was the throwing of rice as the bride passed down the aisle of the church. Amongst the guests present were Mr. and Mrs. Munro, senr. and junr., the Hon. J. B. Patterson, Mr. and Mrs. A. Young, Mr. and Mrs. Sydenham, and Mrs. Cattanach.10

  • 6 Mar 1915, The Late Dr. Bobart.
    Dr. Albert O. Bobart, who died at his residence in Rangers-road, Neutral Bay, recently was the first Australian medical man to enter the Royal Navy. He was a native of Melbourne, and graduated from Wesley College to the University of that city, where he took the degrees M.B. and Ch.B. In 1889 he was appointed resident surgeon to Melbourne Hospital, and after occupying that position for 18 months he went to England, and there qualified for M.R.C.S. and L.R.C.P., and was for a time demonstrator of anatomy at King's College, London.
    Afterwards he joined the London Deep Sea Mission to establish and have the care of hospitals in Labrador and Newfoundland. He served in the waters of those colonies among the fishermen and Esquimeaux for about two years. On returning to England he entered the Royal Navy as surgeon, and was appointed to the Haslar Hospital, and then to H.M.S. Dart, survey ship on the Australian station.
    Early in 1899 he married in Sydney the youngest daughter of the late Richard Holdsworth, a well-known solicitor of this city. On the expiration of the Dart's commission Dr. Bobart returned to England, and in September, 1901, was appointed to H.M.S. Britannia, the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth. A few years later he left the service, and went into practice at Nowra. Whilst there he took a great interest in the Royal Australian Naval College at Jervis Bay, then in process of formation, and would probably have entered the R.A. Navy had he lived. He has left a widow and one son.8

  • 29 Jun 1934, WEDDING Rowe-Bobardt
    St. George's Presbyterian Church, East St. Kilda, was decorated with white and golden flowers yesterday evening for the wedding of Elizabeth Louise, daughter of Mrs. I. A. Bobardt, of Dunraven, Balaclava, to Clifford; youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Rowe, of Beechworth. White and gold were the colours chosen by the bride for her gown and those of her attendants. Old Ivory Brussels lace mounted on ninon and made on a satin foundation formed the lovely wedding gown, which had a sweeping train covered by a long trained veil of deep ivory tulle. Orange blossom girdled the waist and bound the veil to the bride's head, and she carried white azaleas and lily of the valley. The Misses Merle Bald, Kathleen Smith, and Joan Rowe attended her. Their frocks were of ivory chiffon, with draped fichus round the V-neck- line, and trains caught at the waist with golden roses. Golden leaves encircled their heads, and they carried bouquets of Cloth of Gold roses. Sir Walter Leitch gave the bride away, and the ceremony was performed by the Rev. Farquhar Chisholm.
    Afterward about 100 guests were entertained at wedding dinner at Tudor Court, where the bride's mother received with her sisters the Misses Swan. Her gown of burgundy crepe romaine was worn with a matching velvet wrap, and she carried Duchess of York pansies.10

Anecdote*c 1870John Degotardi b. 1823 Artist (Printmaker), (Photographer)
Degotardi, an Austrian ex-pat, arrived in Australia in 1853 and worked in numerous printing houses in Sydney. Later in his career, he became interested in photography. His panoramic views of Sydney and the surrounding country won him many awards and recognition.
John Degotardi photographer, engraver, printer and publisher, was born on 26 September 1823 at Laibach (Ljubljana), Yugoslavia, son of Johann and Josephine Degotardi. He grew up in Graz, Austria, where he became, successively, apprentice compositor and compositor for the printing firm of Andreas Leykam Heirs where his father worked as a printer. Degotardi left Graz, never to return, on 24 October 1843. In 1844 he worked briefly for the printing firms of L.F. Fues (Tübingen) and J.G. Cotta (Stuttgart). From September 1844 until August 1848 he worked in the printing-house of P.S. Schönefeldt in Itzehoe, apart from an eight months’ break when he worked for the printer C.H. Andersen in Tönning.
In August 1848 Degotardi travelled to London. He remained until January 1853, working as a compositor for John Wertheimer & Co. In London, on 24 April 1852, he married Minna Fränkel from Lower Saxony whom he had come to know in Itzehoe. A London friend with whom he was still corresponding in the 1870s and 1880s was Friedrich Carl Bobardt, subsequently a prominent printer in Halle-an-der-Saale. In 1849 and 1850 Degotardi acted as London correspondent for the Grazer Zeitung , reporting on the city’s political and cultural scene. His diary (October 1843—April 1852) and a notebook on printing techniques (started in 1849) survive.
John and Minna Degotardi sailed from Gravesend for Sydney in the Panthea on 23 January 1853. There Degotardi quickly established himself as a jobbing printer. Between 1853 and 1866 he produced a steady stream of circulars, labels, maps, plans, sheet-music and pamphlets. He occupied a series of George Street premises, staying longest at 20 York Street (1854-57) and at his Sydney Printing House (1860-66) in Robin Hood Lane, off George Street. A preference for the visual and the graphic in his lithographic work is already evident by 1854 in his four-colour printing of Woolcott and Clarke’s Map of the City of Sydney (engraved by J. Carmichael, q.v.) and typified as late as 1865 by the coloured plates in S. Bennett’s The History of Australian Discovery and Colonisation . Illustrations after F.C. Terry and S.T. Gill were also produced from his printery.
From June 1855 until January 1856 Degotardi edited and published The Spirit of the Age, a monthly digest with a guaranteed circulation for each issue of 2000 copies. When the magazine folded he launched, on 5 April 1856, his Australische Deutsche Zeitung which appeared weekly (Saturday) until late in 1859. In the closing months of the paper’s life Degotardi printed the first four issues (May-June 1859) of J. Kruse & H.W. Puttmann’s Deutsche Monatschrift für Australien, which was published in Melbourne. Despite the failure of the paper, Degotardi exercised a practical and life-long involvement in the affairs of the German community in Sydney and New South Wales.
From 1859 until 1864 Degotardi conducted a warm, even intimate, correspondence with Alois von Auer, director (1841-68) of the Imperial and Royal Court and State Printery in Vienna. Seven letters and seven further documents from Auer have been preserved. Auer praises, and criticises, the various examples of printing forwarded by Degotardi; he also answers at length, often with additional notes, Degotardi’s questions on nature printing and, above all, on photo-galvanography and photolithography. There is something of Auer’s bouncy entrepreneurial flair behind Degotardi publishing, in 1861, his The Art of Printing in Its Various Branches: With Specimens and Illustrations (facsimile reprint, Brandywine Press and Archive, Sydney 1982). Said to be the first Australian work on printing, the twenty-four-page booklet is in essence an ambitious prospectus for Degotardi’s Printing House and the services there available. It includes descriptions of the processes of photolithography, nature printing and electrotyping.
An example of Degotardi’s new-found expertise in photolithography was his colour printing in 1862 of F.H. Reuss and J.L. Browne’s Map of New South Wales and Part of Queensland , described by a Sydney newspaper on 7 July 1862 as 'printed by means of the newly-discovered art of photo-lithography and … is, we believe, the first application in this colony of the art to purposes in which the draughtsman or engraver have hitherto labored’. A further news item in the same year reported that Degotardi had 'entered into arrangements with the Government for making photo-lithographic copies of official plans for public works’.
Degotardi’s heavy investment in photolithography (including his purchase of lenses from Voigtlander in Brunswick) seems to have sharpened his focus on photography itself, an art he had effusively praised in 1861 in The Art of Printing . By the end of 1866 Degotardi, who now styled himself 'Landscape photographer’ and 'photo-lithographer’, had produced from his Robin Hood Lane premises a Holtermann-like photographic panorama (25.5 × 156 cm) of Sydney, and a series of city views which were awarded a medal ('beautiful collection’) at the 1866 Melbourne Intercolonial Exhibition. His earliest extant photograph is Government House from Garden Island (c.1866, Mitchell Library). His studio, or rather 'Portrait and Landscape Gallery’, was subsequently at 287 George Street (1867-72), previously the studio of William Hetzer, then at 348 George Street (1872-75).
Degotardi showed twelve Photographic Views of Sydney and Surrounding Country, New South Wales at the 1870 Sydney Intercolonial Exhibition; a set is in the National Library. Five frames of his photographs in the New South Wales annexe of the 1871 London International Exhibition were shown by J.H. Newman , presumably acting as his agent. Three were separate frames of opalotypes (photographs on opaque glass), cabinets and cartes-de-visite, while the other two consisted of portrait vignettes, among which the Bishop of Sydney was the only obvious celebrity. He won awards for his landscape photographs at Sydney in 1870 and at the 1873 London International and the 1879 Sydney International exhibitions.
In 1873 Degotardi was briefly in partnership with the engraver S.T. Leigh. Then from 1875 until his death he worked from the family home, purchased in 1859, in John (later Edward) Street, Peacock’s Point, Balmain. A notebook kept by Degotardi from 1871 to 1873 lists the views and people ('¾ lady’) he photographed. A large proportion of the 143 negatives recorded were taken for (and presumably at) David Jones’s store. Other subjects were provided by the Herald , Government House and, with unnerving frequency, the Mortuary. The same notebook comments on the procedures used. Here Degotardi received help, advice and chemicals from F.C. Bobardt in Germany.
He received still more help and advice from Germany when his unmarried half-sister, Josephine Degotardi (b. 1843), came to Sydney on 7 March 1873. She had spent the last three months of 1872 ensconced in the bustling Munich workshops of Josef Albert, and she brought with her extensive notes on photolithography, photographic exposures and developing techniques and, naturally enough, on Albert’s pioneering new calotype process. One immediate result of Josephine’s imported cache (which has survived) was the (unspecified) 'New Procedure’ introduced by Degotardi on 1 April 1873 into his daily photographic routine. In 1875 he was awarded a medal by the Victorian Intercolonial Exhibition for his 'Photo-mechanical Printing … the process stands unrivalled’. A further, final, medal was awarded in Sydney in 1879 for his 'Heliotype process … the negative being worthy of commendation’.
That John Degotardi remained content to practise rather than significantly advance the art of photography was probably due to encroaching ill-health. He died of a cerebral haemorrhage with paralysis at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, on 16 December 1882. His wife Minna (b. 1827) had died of breast cancer on 29 January 1872 and his second wife Anna, née Jung (b. 1840), died on 23 December 1877 in the fifth month of their marriage. Minna and John Degotardi were survived by four of their eight children, of whom John junior (1860-1937) became in turn a prolific and noted photographer within the Public Works Department in Sydney, taking the now famous photographs of the Rocks area of Sydney during the bubonic plague of 1900.4
