Elizabeth Louisa How is the earliest known Australian female amateur photographer. The subjects of How's portrait photography include members of her merchant family, friends, staff, and visitors to the How's family residence at 'Woodlands,' North Sydney. How's landscape photography recorded views of Sydney Cove, Government House, Campbell's Wharf, and views around her house and garden. How's salted paper prints were developed using half-plate glass negatives.
