Gelatin silver print photograph, 90 x 140 mm; verso inscribed in pencil ‘Port Darwin’; fine condition, unmounted.

In spite of the fact that Port Darwin had officially became known as Darwin in 1911, we believe this photograph was taken by a visitor with a personal camera around 1920; they simply used the old nomenclature in their caption on the back.

A beautiful vernacular image.
