Nicholas Caire and fellow photographer J.W. Lindt shared a mutual enthusiasm for the Black Spur in the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, and in 1904 they collaborated on an illustrated guidebook of the district. Caire most likely stayed with Lindt in his home the Hermitage, a “tourist chalet” built by Lindt who had moved to the Black Spur in 1895, after working in his studio for 19 years in Melbourne.
