Printing-out-paper print photograph, 152 x 205 mm; no photographer’s imprint; verso with contemporary inscription in pencil: ‘Section of Queenstown / Hospital on the hill’; there are small spots of discolouration at the left and right edges, and in the sky area the inscription shows through the thin paper; otherwise, this is an extremely sharp image with a fabulous amount of detail, including of the natural landscape scarred by mining activity, miners’ housing, the Queenstown Co-Operative Store at bottom right, and of course the hospital at upper left.
