Echunga

Echunga

Photographic copy of sketch by George Gawler of John Barton Hack's farm. Note: copies may be requested from the Art Gallery. According to a researcher, this is not a copy of Gawler's sketch. It is a copy of the lithograph made after Gawler's sketch and published by James Chaplin Hailes (1796-1880), bookseller of Leadenhall Street in the City of London and printed and hand-coloured by J. Hitchin or Hitchen, actually John Bishop Hitchins (1799-1879), artist of Penton Place, Newington St Mary, Surrey (by 1846 of 77 Vauxhall Street, Lambeth). Gawler painted the watercolour in June 1841 so the lithograph must have been produced soon after his return to England in early 1842.

Roseworthy

Roseworthy

Horses struck by lightning near Roseworthy. According to a researcher, the location is similar to Elbow Hill. An article which appeared in the Advertiser, Saturday 26 January 1901 tells the following story: 'A MAN AND SIX HORSES KILLED: Our Gawler correspondent, writing on Friday evening, said "A very heavy storm passed over the district this afternoon, the thunder and lightning being unusually severe. Two brothers, named Carey, farmers, living near Templars, were driving their team of six horses horne from Gawler, and when they were near Roseworthy, about 3 o'clock, Mr. Thomas Carey and the six horses were struck by lightning and killed instantaneously. They had pulled up, and the brother had gone into a house for the purpose of borrowing an overcoat. On returning to the vehicle he received a terrible shock on finding his brother and the horses dead. The team was considered to be the best which came into Gawler.' [On back of photograph] 'Horses struck by lightning near Roseworthy. (Photograph taken by Mr. E.T. Marchant. Light patch across right of picture was caused by a defective plate holder on the camera.) / 25/1/1901 / approx. 100 yards North Roseworthy railway on Main North Road. Thomas J.
