Albumen print photograph, 280 x 230 mm, laid down on its original album leaf of thin card, with a fully contemporary pencilled caption in French beneath the image: ‘Splitters fall (partie du milieu) haute 200 pieds’; a strong print with good tonal range, slight yellowing at edges; in very good condition (tiny amount of loss at bottom right corner, probably pre-dating the mounting).

The State Library of Victoria holds another copy of this view (PCLTAF ; 302 P.16; in identical format, titled Foot of Splitter’s Falls), which it dates to 1879-1881.

Note: another waterfall known as Splitter’s Falls is located near Hall’s Gap, Western Victoria.
