 Item
Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3087D/56

Scope and Contents

200 x 146 mm. A view showing a small wooden cabin with a mother and two children beside the doorway. The roofing is made in the characteristic settlers’ way with sheets of flattened tree-bark held down by a network of branches. The picture shows a small vegetable plot in the foreground. This photograph, and Y3087D/55, give a fascinating and evocative picture of the hardships of life outside the larger cities.
