<p style='text-align: justify;'>John Mitchell Cantle (1849-1919) was a Sydney native who was employed as an architectural draughtsman and railway surveyor. He developed a parallel career as an important early ornithological painter, illustrator, cartoonist and postcard designer, sketching from observation while employed by the railways in the bush around Sydney and eastern New South Wales. Cantle first exhibited his work in 1883, and between that date and 1918, created several hundred watercolour and gouache paintings of birds. Cantle was associated with the Australian Museum, Sydney, and produced illustrations of some of its specimens, including several non-Australian birds.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>See Janus record <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://janus.lib.cam.ac.uk/db/node.xsp?id=EAD%2FGBR%2F0115%2FRCMS%20278%2F7%2F4'>here</a></p>
