Abstract/Summary Henry William Mobsby was born on 17 August 1859 at Hove, Sussex, England, and came to Queensland in 1883. He had diplomas and certificates from the London Chamber of Commerce, the City and Guilds Institute, the Cripplegate Institute and the South Kensington School of Arts. Mobsby was an instructor in Decoration and Photography at the Brisbane Technical College before being appointed artist and photographer with the Department of Agriculture and Stock in 1897. In 1899, he was also appointed to the Chief Secretary's Department and the Intelligence and Tourist Bureau. Mobsby's photography gained international distinction and he officially represented Queensland at the Franco-British Exhibition in London in 1908, the Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915 (where he took a motion picture certificate course), the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924-25, and the New Zealand and South Seas Exhibition in Dunedin in 1925-26.

Additional Notes On 11 April 1920, after visiting invalid soldiers at Rosemount Hospital and Anzac Hostel (Shafston House) the Duke and Duchess were driven from Rosemount to Newstead Park where they boarded Mr R. J. M'Cowan's [or McCowan?] yacht Juanita to visit the Anzac Hotel. Mr R. J. M'Cowan commanded the yatch and was joined by Mr W. A. Douglas and Mr M'Cowan.

The Juanita was the same vessel that had carried the Prince of Wales to the same destination in 1920.
