Photographer Thomas Nevin was well known to the readers of the Hobart newspaper, The Mercury, apart from the usual trade advertisements for his services and the notices inserted on the occasion of births, deaths and marriages within his family. He reproduced the front page of the 23 December 1874 issue as a card measuring 3×2 inches, which was reported in an article on 25 December 1874:

A PHOTOGRAPHIC FEAT. – Mr T. J. Nevin, of Elizabeth-street, has performed a feat in photography which may be justly regarded as a literary curiosity. He has succeeded in legibly producing the front page of The Mercury of Wednesday, the 23 inst., on a card three inches by two inches. Many of the advertisements could be read without the aid of a glass, and the seven columns admit of a margin all round the card.

Above: the front page of The Mercury 23 December 1874

Nevin was actively involved in providing the newspaper office with photographs for display in their street-front windows from ca. 1872. Furnishing details to reporters of events and exhibitions at the Hobart Town Hall was another aspect of his job as Office Keeper and Hall Keeper there from the mid-1870s. And when Thomas Nevin was dismissed from the Town Hall position for inebriation in December 1880, The Mercury ran a series of short notices and a detailed account of the whole incident into January 1881.

Above: The GHOST incident again: this notice in the Mercury 26 December 1880 takes pains to stress that Thomas Nevin was discharged from the HCC for drunkenness and not for pretending to be a ghost on the night of Dec. 3, 1880. The “coward” ie the ghost was probably Edwin Midwood, Nevin’s colleague and Information Officer at the Town Hall City Corporation’s Office.

THE STILWELL INDEX

Researchers are indebted to the late G.T. Stilwell for his creation of the Stilwell Index during his service at the State Library of Tasmania. G.T. Stilwell also published a short biography of Thomas Nevin with J. S. Kerr outlining the Town Hall dismissal and the misattribution by Chris Long of Nevin’s convict portraiture to A.H. Boyd in The Dictionary of Australian Artists: painters, sketchers, photographers and engravers to 1870, edited by Joan Kerr. (Melbourne: Oxford University Press 1992).

There are four entries for Thomas J. Nevin in the Stilwell Index, the State Library of Tasmania’s TALIS Catalogue for the Tasmanian Index (Newspapers & Journals):
