Digital Photograph - Woman Hunting with Dog, St Margaret Island, circa 1916 Reg. No: MM 110897
- This photograph shows Nancy Bodman in 'hunting gear' with a shot gun and her dog, St Margaret Island, circa 1916.
The O'Connor family leased the island for a period of time in the early 20th century to graze their cattle in the summer. There was only one shack on the island, however the O'Connors would invite friends and family to visit over the summer to camp.
The photographer of this image, Doctor Sydney Pern, was a friend of the donor's family, who lived in Yarram. In addition to his duties as the local GP, he was an enthusiastic amateur photographer.
