[Title from caption in negative]. Albumen print photograph, 140 x 210 mm, numbered 991 in the negative; preserved as issued mounted on the original green backing sheet, 190 x 230 mm, imprinted in red ink, upper centre: ‘C. RUDD. View Specialist, 257 Bourke Street’, and at lower centre: ‘VICTORIAN PHOTOGRAPHS’, with at l.l. ‘C. RUDD, View Specialist’, and l.r.: ‘257 Bourke Street (Close to Swanston St.) Melbourne.’; both the print and the secondary support are in excellent condition.

This view almost certainly documents a loggers’ temporary camp. Note the crude bark slab hut in the background.

No other example traced.
