[Cattle And Sheep Droving, Australia]

c1960s. Group of 11 vintage silver gelatin photographs, most with annotations in pencil or ink, typed captions or attached slips of newsprint, or artist’s stamps verso, 18.9 x 24.8cm to 25.3 x 30.8cm. Tears, creases, surface loss and stains overall.

Captions include: (a) Sheep and drovers go on road first in morning. Wagon driven by cook and the outfit’s horse, follow. When they catch up with drovers, it’s lunch time; (b) Cutting out strays during mustering on Quinyambie Station, SA; (c) Shepherds Graham Mansell and boss drover Jack Hickey rest with their horses...Dogs take advantage of shade cast by horses; (d) An overlander, Graham Fenton, going back to look for strays, mounts his horse ready for perhaps a week of back-tracking; (e) Counting the herd. Most of the stockman’s life is spent in the mustering and handling of stock. He must be something of a veterinary surgeon…; (f) Thirsty cattle mill around a waterhole at the end of one stage of a long, dusty trek. Some mobs have taken three years to reach their destination.

Stamps include dates “1960” and “1963”, People [magazine], and photographer’s copyright details including “524-4278. 93 Grays Point Road, Grays Point NSW” and “c/o Grays Point PO, Sutherland, NSW.”
