Two gelatin silver print photographs, in uniform 105 x 150 mm format, on their original plain board mounts, each captioned in pencil beneath the image ‘”The Docks” 1913 / D. B. Read, Melb.’; the prints have good tonal range and excellent clarity; one has a tiny closed tear at top right corner (probably from the time of mounting), but otherwise they are both in excellent condition.

Whoever D. B. Read was, they were certainly a talented photographer – as the more animated of these two shots, in particular, certainly proves.
