Arriving in Sydney in the 1830s, Edward Barlow established himself as a successful printer and lithographer. Barlow was something of an entrepreneur whose work included ornamental art, art restoration, architecture and a period as the proprietor of a Theatre of Arts.

lithographer, printer, architect, surveyor and entrepreneur, arrived at Sydney from London aboard the Lord Goderich on 30 August 1836.

Austin ) and was offering profile portraits, architectural drawings and plans of estates. This business seems to have flourished. In October Barlow was advertising for two or three lithographers and draughtsmen to assist him and the following April he took over the adjoining house. Despite advertising 'One Splendid Lithographic and Zincographic Printing Press’ for sale in November 1837 ...
