Group of Aboriginal men and women, Yorketown

Archive Collections / I Anderson / Series AA531/1 / Group of Aboriginal men and women, Yorketown

Group of nine people. King Tommy is seated in the middle, back row, holding a rifle. Two men are standing to his side. Three women are seated in front of King Tommy and three men recline on the ground in front of the women.

There are two prints of this image; it appears the original was torn between the two men at the left. The second image has been cropped with the two men missing from the photograph.

King Tommy died in 1887, therefore the photograph is prior to this date.
