James Leggatt's butcher shop, Gulgong 1872



Product Description

The motto of James Leggatt's Smithfield Butchery was 'down with the monopoly and feed the hungry'. His advertising proclaimed his beef was 'from the best herds in the Western districts', his mutton was 'from the choicest flocks in the colony', his pork was 'warranted dairy fed' and his lamb was 'raised especially to his order'. He opened a branch store in Home Rule at the start of the rush in June 1872 and had delivery carts supplying meat to the goldfields. Meat was 4d a pound [just over 7 cents per kg], roughly twice that in Sydney.

Our Giclee prints are made to order from high resolution digital scans on archival cotton rag papers using pigment inks. They are printed with a white border allowing you to mount and frame as desired. A Library disclaimer is also printed along the bottom edge of the print.

Prints may take up to 21 days to produce and will be sent to you rolled in a sturdy tube.

Sample prints are available to inspect at the Library Shop.
