A hand-coloured cabinet photograph (coloured image size 133 x 90 mm) of three men in uniform. The photograph is mounted on the gilt-edged card of 'Artist & Photographer Otto von Hartitzsch . 125 Rundle Street, Adelaide'
- The South Australian Register (Thursday, 16 November 1882) contains an advertisement for the sale of 'the whole of his superior stock-in-trade . of his well-known photographic establishment . in consequence of his relinquishing the profession'. Accordingly, this photograph cannot be later than 1882, but it is probably circa 1880. The young men are in identical uniforms; the only specific clue is the distinctive badge on their forage caps. The extensive hand-colouring obliterates some of the detail, but it is essentially a flag or pennant on a flagpole set within a circle of rope finished off with a square knot. This suggests to us the uniforms are of maritime, if not naval, relevance (and we would not be surprised to learn that the men were foreign visitors to Adelaide).
