Photograph Album Including General Birdwood's Tour Of Melbourne

c1920. Forty-eight (48) vintage silver gelatin photographs in a Kodak album-book, annotated “E.J. Pini, 31 Stead Street, South Melbourne” and dated “21.2.20” in ink on inside cover, most images captioned in ink on album page, 7.7 x 10.3cm (approx. each). Minor stains, developing flaws or silvering to some images, minor foxing to album pages.

The album belonged to an “E.J. Pini”, most likely an army associate of General Birdwood, as there are pictures of a military man with his family and pets, as well as Birdwood’s tour of Melbourne. It includes views of Panama and the canal, Pitcairn Island, and areas of Victoria.

William Birdwood (1865-1951) was a British army officer who commanded the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps [ANZAC] during the Gallipoli campaign of 1915. He toured Australia and New Zealand in 1920, then sailed through Panama on his return to England. Ref: AWM.
