Blacks’ Camp [sic]

c1900. Printout paper photograph, titled in pencil verso, 21.7 x 28.7cm. Crease with cracking, repaired tears and surface loss to left edge.

The image appears to be posed, showing two Aboriginal families, and several dogs. Nine of the children are standing on the left, two women with one child are seated in the centre, two men in Western clothing are standing off to the right. Two dome-shaped bark huts, covered with palm fronds, are in the background. This type of dwelling indicates that the photograph may have been taken in an area with a warm but wet climate, possibly in Queensland. Ref: aboriginalculture.com.au.
