ABORIGINAL MAN RIDING CAMEL
B/W photo of Aboriginal man riding camel, plain or desert behind.
Man wearing workman's clothes, camel saddled & shows bags, saddle tree.
Useful illustration of camel harnessing.
The photo is slightly bent with a tear in the lower right hand corner and fraying in all corners.
Purchased by the Shire on 03/07/2008 - receipt no. 03 was made to acknowledge both the previous loan of the photo and then formally acquiring it. Acquired with thanks by Natalie James. Unfortunately, no mention of who it was purchased from was made on the receipt.
(This photo was found ound in a sleeve in the museum workshop along with four other photos now also accessioned as 2012.9 & 2012.10a-c. It is unclear if there is a connection between them all)
Shows both the riding of a camel and how a camel can be harnessed.
Interpretive: Shows both the riding of a camel and how a camel can be harnessed.
