Nine photographs approx. 6 1/4 x 4 3/8" mounted on slightly larger stiff card. The views show a group of men obviously enjoying their day out in the bush. The location is unknown, but there is a rather large lake, and the town has a goodly collection of stone buildings, approximately sixteen properties, with some two story homes and a couple of elongated buildings. There is an affectionate view of the shooting party, four men reclining on the ground next to their tent with their border terrier (?), smoking and smiling, a skiff on a lake behind them; the town view with a main street; a bush scene with a lake and a fellow standing beside his tent; a view of gum trees, with a seated man taking aim, a border collie & a lake behind him; a detailed view of the tent, with two shotguns perched in front; two bush scenes and two beside the rather large lake. A bit of light scattered foxing otherwise quite bright.
