A fine portrait of an Indigenous Australian woman wearing a plain head-scarf knotted under her chin

An unmounted albumen paper photograph (195 × 145 mm, printed without margins on gloss paper); minute surface chips to the bottom corner tips; in excellent condition.

Neither the subject nor the photographer are identified (or known to us). The photograph may have been taken in South Australia, where it surfaced about 20 years ago; we suggest it dates from the 1890s.
