Collection of 13 original photographs, mostly at 'Morwenstowe' station at Wallaga Lake, including a group portrait of Aboriginal schoolchildren
circa, 1895. Collection of 13 albumen prints measuring approximately 110 x 155 mm, each with early cursive annotations to verso; some prints a little faded yet very good condition overall. Collection of 13 original photographs documenting daily life at Wallaga Lake during the later nineteenth-century, including a significant group portrait including Aboriginal children at Corunna school circa 1895. Four Aboriginal children are included in the portrait of 20 schoolchildren, and an inscribed note to the reverse of the photograph identifies this as the school at Corunna (located some 10 kilometres north of Wallaga Aboriginal reserve). The reserve was created in 1891 and became home to over 90 Yuin Aboriginal persons. The children in the group portrait were under the care and instruction of Sister Ivy, who is identified by name in a separate portrait photograph included in this collection. Several other photographs detail the homestead 'Morwenstowe' located upon the shores of Wallaga Lake, showing the clearing and improvement of the farm as well as boating, coaching and other leisure activities. Three photographs in the collection depict high country pastures around Tumut; the remainder concern the Wallaga Lake region and hinterlands.
