[Between 1890 and 1900]. Albumen print photograph, 205 x 155 mm; in manuscript in the negative at bottom left ‘624. Australian Aboriginal, N.S.W. / H. King Photo., Syd.’; mounted recto of its original 19th-century album leaf (the leaf has been professionally “split”); in very good condition.

Unfortunately this image bears one of Henry King’s characteristically generic captions – unhelpful to the viewer, and unsympathetic towards the anonymous sitter.
