Administrative / Biographical history

CYRUS MOSS

Cyrus Saul Moss was born in 1872, the youngest son of Nowra mayor Henry Moss and his wife Sarah. He worked as a clerk with local solicitor Thomas Marriott.

In the 1890s, he was secretary of both the football club and cricket club. Photography was his hobby and some of his photographs were used to illustrate Woodhill’s The Hawkesbury and Shoalhaven Calendar, Cultural and Cookery Guide for 1905.

He married Margaret Graham in 1920 and was elected to Nowra Council from 1922 to 1925. Moss died in 1931.

Two albums of photographs by Moss are held by the Nowra Museum and images from them were used in an exhibition presented by Shoalhaven Historical Society in 1996.
