*chuckle* A blogger post about a Mr Blogg.
Research into the Argus Sauce thing brings Mr John Kendrick Blogg into the spotlight. Not only was he an industrial chemist, sauce maker, and perfumer to the Victorian Governor, he was a wood carver described as "an artist with a chisel" as well as a poet and goodness knows what else. He has an extensive holding at the National Library of Australia.
The nature of the man makes it easy to understand why he and Vasco got together on the 'scurrilous' poster featuring the (apparently) rather pompous Sir Thomas Bent, a man described as being 'open to caricature'.
So why have we heard so little about John Kendrick Blogg? His woodwork is, it seems, still highly prized.
The more you look into the life of Vasco Louriero, the more interesting people you stumble across.
