This series comprises three black and white (b/w) photographic prints in series AA 1/60 that depict Australian Aboriginal people from the Luritja community. The photographs were probably taken by Ernest E Kramer (see AA 669). The prints are stored unmounted in a binder titled 'AA 1 Aborigines' Friends' Association (AFA) Photographic Prints, Album 3 of 4'.

South Australian Museum archivist Kay L Mead described this series in 1980. In her listing she recorded a caption for this series but the exact source of the caption is not known. This caption has been retained as the 'Series Title' and has been listed in the 'Details' field of the inventory. She also lists seperate captions for each photograph in this listing which appear to be the same as the annotations written on the reverse of each photograph. All annotations and ink stamps found on the prints have also been listed in the 'Details' field of the inventory. All place names and proper names from the annotations and captions have been indexed.

The series was part of Acc. No. 86.
