Name of creator
Frank Coxhead was born in 1851 and his stepbrother Harry, born in 1846. They came to New Zealand with their parents in 1858. The Coxhead Brothers made their mark in photographic history and Frank especially with his fine landscape work. Frank Coxhead was qualified by 1872 and took over J W Allen's second studio in Princes Street, near the Octagon. He later opened a luxurious studio on the corner of Princes & High Streets (CMA Building) Dunedin in 1890. In about 1898, he handed over his best landscape plates to the Burton Brothers, who included some of his prints in their catalogue of 1901 after removing his signature and substituting their own. No more of Frank Coxhead is heard of in Dunedin after that time, but his landscape views, often mounted in large albums, are treasured today by libraries, art galleries, museums and collectors of fine photographs.
