Wordless Wednesday: mystery photo from Lundager Rockhampton


This photo is among some we inherited from Mr Cassmob’s father, probably one he rescued while living in Rocky. We know it’s not one of his family because it’s from Queensland, probably in the 1880s, whereas his family were from Victoria <gasp! horror!>.

It’s such a delightful photograph that it would be wonderful if someone could identify the woman and child. Lundager was in Rockhampton in the 1880s then in Mt Morgan so it’s likely an 1880s photo, which fits with the woman’s dress style.

Having good Scottish ancestry I just love the little fellow’s outfit. The dog’s not bad either! On closer inspection I wonder if the woman is indeed the boy’s mother, or a sister. She looks quite young although very much like the boy.

    • That’s a good idea Julie, but no, all I have is a book. Maybe a family member whose tartan it is will recognise it. I would love for it to be a family photo of mine but no such luck.
