    Photographic portrait of the Very Rev. Nathaniel Linden Parkyn (1851-1931), signed by him on the mount, “Your very affectionate friend, N. Lindon Parkyn”. Born in England, Parkyn was ordained in 1891 and served as curate in several English towns and villages before coming to Australia and serving as the second Dean of the Anglican Diocese of Ballarat from 1897-1914. He was remembered as an articulate speaker and a benevolent public figure to citizens of all denominations. He returned to England in 1914 where he served as vicar at Blackpool until 1821 before retiring to Bath where he died in 1931. An earlier portrait of Parkyn, taken before he came to Australia, is held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. This later portrait by Richards & Co. of Ballarat circa 1910. No photographic holdings of Dean Parkyn can be found in any Australian institution.

    Minor soiling, tanning, and wear to mount. Minor silvering and surface wear to the photograph. Very Good Condition.
