The photographer of this wonderful group portrait, E.B. Cardell, was active in Kapunda, near Angaston in the Barossa Valley, during the year 1866. This is the only year he is recorded as working in South Australia, and by the early 1870s he appears in Queensland (Davies & Stanbury, Mechanical Eye).

An inscription on the back of another copy of this carte de visite identifies the members of the Council (presumably from left to right) as: William Green (Gawler Park), N. Player (Moorooroo), J.Jepson (Angaston), E.W. Roberts, G.Schilling, J.G. Klemm.
