[TASMANIA] The administrative board of the Fern Tree Bower, near Huon Road at the foot of Mt. Wellington, Hobart. Late 1880s.
Albumen print photograph, 180 x 210 mm, mounted on its original 19th-century album page, with inscription in ink beneath the image ‘Fern tree board’ (apparently in reference to the three gentlemen posing at left, who presumably were the public servants responsible for the Fern Tree Bower); a strong print in good condition. Note: the print is affixed to the album page at each of its corners by means of the original short strips of double-sided tape (now very brittle), and can easily be removed from the mount.
