An albumen paper carte de visite photograph of a group of Australian duck shooters (hunting seems too generous a term!)
The photograph (paper size 60 x 95 mm, image size an oval 55 x 85 mm) is mounted as issued on a plain card. The photographer is not identified; the item was found in an album in Adelaide, so it is probably of South Australian origin. Five gentlemen are depicted with shotguns and birds in the hand, with plenty more on the ground in front of a tent, inside of which is a table groaning under the weight of what appear to be bottles of sparkling wine. Strictly speaking, it looks like the 1870s; put more broadly though, one could say it's timeless.
