American and Australasian Photographic Company
A company under which Beaufoy Merlin operated during his time as a travelling photographer, first in Melbourne, then in New South Wales before establishing a portrait studio in Sydney. It was a grandiose name with no apparent connection to America. Joined by his assistant, a young Charles Bayliss, along with Augustus Clinton, the company became known for producing what is now called the Holtermann collection of photographs in the Mitchell Library.
