[Title from inscription]. Albumen print photograph, 105 x 190 mm; inscribed in pencil verso in a fully contemporary hand ‘Camp in Middle Harbour’; in very good condition; unmounted.

A charming 1890s outdoor portrait by an unidentified photographer – possibly an amateur – of a group of Sydneysiders enjoying recreation time on the Middle Harbour foreshore. We suspect this may have been taken on the Folly Point side of Willoughby Bay, looking across to Cremorne (present-day Wonga Road). The presence of the various flags may (or may not) provide a clue as to the occasion and precise date.
