An Edwardian photograph of the staff of a butcher's shop, possibly in Woodside in the Adelaide Hills

The five men (four in butcher's striped aprons) and one woman are standing on the unsealed road in front of the shop, next to a horse-drawn delivery cart sign-written with the name 'A. Mount'. The vintage photograph (gelatin silver, image size 107 x 152 mm) is on the original blind-stamped mount of 'McNeills, 184 Rundle St, Adelaide' (207 x 246 mm). Pencilled on the verso is '1907 / A. Mount / Woodside'; although we have been unable to verify these details, most places in the Adelaide Hills in the Edwardian era probably did look like this. However, what is decidedly most rare about this scene is that one of the butchers is of Indian or Afghan descent.
