A sepia-toned gelatin silver photograph (visible image size 300 × 235 mm), behind glass in the original wide polished wooden frame (external dimensions 590 × 517 mm); the original mat is inscribed in white ink in a calligraphic hand with the title and photographer's details ('Chas P. Scott. Photo 21A Waymouth St, Adelaide').
The condition of all aspects of this impressive item is uniformly fine.
Charles Scott (1878-1928) is listed as a photographer at that address in South Australian directories 'from 1909 to 1915+' (Photohistory SA website). The Art Gallery of SA gives the date '1903-04' for this image in its collection, and we take this date to be when the original negative was exposed.
