Introduction

John Nixon, the first recorded printer in the Falkland Islands, arrived with his wife and children on board the Ealing Grove 12 January 1858 as part of the Falkland Islands Garrison.  He worked as Government Printer from 1874, employed at 4 shillings a day when required, and was responsible for the printing of official forms, gazettes and other Government publications and papers.

The Government Printing Office was originally in a building in the Dockyard.  The office was very cramped and unfit for purpose so a new building measuring 40 by 20 feet with large windows was erected and was opened early 1909 behind where the Secretariat is now situated.
