The photographs are a little uniformly faded, with some unobtrusive tiny dark spots and minimal silvering-out; they are attractively presented in the original wooden frame with a gilt fillet behind the glass. The frame is lightly scuffed in places; it has a new hanging wire and backing tape, but retains the original framer's label on the verso ('From K. Cameron, Picture Framer and Mount Cutter, Leigh St., Adelaide').
Two of these images (heavily cropped to show only the horse) were reproduced in 'The Observer' (Adelaide, 24 June 1905). The photographer is not identified. The Suffolk is a breed of draught horse nicknamed Punch because of its stocky appearance and power (Hendricks: 'International Encyclopedia of Horse Breeds', 2007).
