Albumen print photograph with hand colouring, carte de visite format, 104 x 64 mm, verso imprinted ‘Photograph by A. McDonald St. George’s Hall, Bourke St. East, Melbourne’; the print has a couple of toning spots but is otherwise in fine condition.

A spectacular tinted studio portrait by Canadian-born photographer Archibald McDonald. The sitter was quite possibly an attendee at the Mayor’s annual fancy dress ball.
