Archive Collections / I Anderson / Series AA531/1 / Camp behind Edithburg School, now parklands

Oval view of two Aboriginal men standing either side of a seated Aboriginal woman in front of a large wurley covered with hessian sacks and other materials.

The older man on the right wears a top hat and leans on a rifle. The other man has a pipe in his mouth and the woman sits on a log between them.

According to Mrs Anderson, the photo was taken in about 1905-1910 near Edithburgh; the man on the left was Black Jack, the woman was Black Lucy and the older man Old Charlie and the Aboriginal lady use to babysit white children.

Mrs I Anderson, obtained the photographs (along with 3 others) from her father-in-law and other long-time Yorke Peninsula residents. She donated the photographs to the Museum in the 1970's.

The original photograph was donated to the Edithburg Museum by Mrs Millar from Edithburg.
