Outside the fermenting shed, 1909

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Fisher 19/4338

Scope and Contents

Quarter-plate (landscape format). Prisoners clearing the ground, which has to be kept constantly clear of grass. In the foreground are bullock carts used for carting tobacco: there are so very few wheeled vehicles in Borneo even in the coast towns that a sight of one is always noticeable. [Showing neatly thatched fermenting shed in background, the carts at the left and the prisoners in a row just in front of the shed].


  • Creation: 1909
