This poster, based on a photograph, appears to be the only one produced by Melbourne-born Edmund Herbert Turnor (1900–1958), who ran a commercial photographic studio in Melbourne during the 1930s and 1940s, and in Sydney during the 1950s. He contributed photographs to various publications including The Home magazine. Ref: NLA; BDM (Vic); SMH 1958 notices; The Age, 3.3.1941;

The promontory, first sighted by Bass and Flinders in 1798, was named by Governor Hunter in honour of Thomas Wilson, a London friend of Flinders, who was a merchant engaged in Australian trade. Ref: Wiki.
