Gelatin silver print photograph, 120 x 200 mm, laid down on its original card mount; the image has an early inscription in black ink ‘In Hobart, Tas. Feb. 29’, and in later blue pen the date ‘1925’ has been written twice; the verso of the mount has a faded newspaper cutting from the period with a potted history of the Landau.

The cabman in this photograph appears to be Alfred Hope, who in 1929 was, along with a few others including “Dodger” Broughton, one of the last remaining owner-drivers of that once-popular Hobart conveyance, the horse-drawn cab.
