  • Ask a question

Group of 50 (fifty) gelatin silver print photographs, all printed on postcard stock (as was customary in this period) in uniform format 140 x 90 mm (approximate); 49/50 have studio imprints, and in some cases the sitters are identified on the back; a couple with corner wear and one with light marks, but overall the portraits are in excellent condition.

The quality and, in many cases, breathtaking beauty of these Australian vernacular photographic portraits makes them a readymade nucleus for an exhibition or publication.
