The Tyree Studio was established in Nelson around 1878 by William Tyree (1855-1924). He was joined in the 1880s by his younger brother, Fred Tyree (1867-1924). In 1886 Rosaline Frank joined the studio as an assistant, and in 1895 she became manager with power of attorney. Between 1895 and 1897 William Tyree travelled in Australia and England. He returned to the studio, but moved permanently to Sydney in 1910, leaving Rosaline Frank as manager. Fred Tyree established his own business in Takaka in 1889. Between 1892 and 1897 he lived in Christchurch. He then returned to Takaka and revived his business, became manager of the Collingwood, and moved to Rockville in 1905, to take up farming. He was responsible for most of the views of gold mining, industrial and rural development, and social and transport activities in Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast. (Source: DNZB)
