About This Image

The dirty dungarees, the checkered shirt and the hat this man wears would indicate that his nationality is most likely Australian--or at least that the picture may have been taken in Australia. The photo studio had a branch there, as well as London. An interesting character study.

Imprinted on recto, below image, in purple ink, and within purple border: "R. & E. SANDS ARTISTS. LONDON"

The narrow border around the image, as well as the rounded corners of the mount would indicate that this is an early specimen of a c-d-v.

Imprinted on verso, also in purple: [Elaborate engraving of seal of England] ESTABLISHED 1851. Photographed by R & E. Sands. Opposite THE TOWER OF LONDON E.C. and at PORT ADELAIDE, South Australia, No [number handwritten in ink]: 3903
