Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format, 104 x 63 mm (mount), verso imprinted ‘Photographed by Anson & Francis, Adelaide Photographic Institution, 97 Rundle Street’; some scattered light foxing to the print and mount.

Davies & Stanbury (The Mechanical Eye) list Anson & Francis at their 97 Rundle Street address between 1863 and 1868. This rather solemn and intense portrait of a woman – possibly a German immigrant – and her daughter most likely dates to the earlier part of this period.
